I want a pony.

My lovely horse, I want to shower you with sugar lumps, and take you to the horse dentistNot so much to ask is it? Just a simple pony. One I could ride around in a meadow. It wouldn't have to be able to do any special tricks, or even eat sugar cubes. I'd be happy with a basic, off-the-shelf, no thrills, value for money equine beast. That's all I want.

Of course, mother and father have other ideas. They're all, "you won't be able to take care of it", or, "you'll just get bored of it and lose interest". Father even dared to suggest that I didn't actually want one at all and just wanted to "indulge in typical childish whimsy". Well nobs and sods to you, father.

The way I see it, having a pony will be central to my future prospects. Take this list of famous people who've had ponies, for instance:

All success stories in their own fields. Without a pony, my life will be empoverished and I will probably end up a crack addict at the tender age of 22. This is an open plea to my parents and the powers that be: give me a pony.
