A Slew of Bobby Pins and a Handful of Gummi Bears

She asked me to cut the loooong bow tie off the collar of her thrifted tunic, and I did, with the sharp-sharp tiny-tiny scissors on my mini Swiss Army knife.
In the car, between gymnastics and the fro-yo place,
she tied the strips of fabric together and made herself a cuff and a headband.

She is about half way through The Invention of Hugo Cabret.
She talked and talked about how she loves the story's extended metaphor 

about broken machines, and how we are all machines, 
and how we are all worth fixing because we all have a purpose.
