There's a girl who comes to ride at my barn who is obsessed with three things: sneezes, national anthems, and Dewey the Library Cat. Every time she comes, she'll ask me how I sneeze, how my friends sneeze, and how my parents sneeze. She'll laugh histerically when I tell her. Then she'll ask the sidewalkers and then tell us how she, her Japanese friend, and her cats sneeze.
After that, she'll sing the American, Canadian, and Japanese National Anthems. Then, she'll ask me all about Dewey the Library Cat - what color he is, how he got to live in the library, and about her cat that she named after him.
Finally, when the lesson is over, she will ask me to pet her. Yes, actually pet her head (apparently in Japan all of the Japanese girls like to be petted), and she'll say in Japanese, "I like that!"
And it's so funny because every time she comes, she'll do the same thing in that order!
