grrl power in pink

highlight of my day yesterday:

as i walked by an elementary school, i saw a little girl, no more than 5 or 6, standing outside the chain-link fence. she was dressed entirely in pink except for tiny black patent leather mary janes: pink tights, frilly pink skirt, pink jacket and a billowing pink organza ribbon on her ponytail. 

she hoisted a rubber boot that someone had apparently thrown over the fence, chucked it back over in one fluid motion, executed what looked like a series of ninja stretches, pulled her skirt down and started to climb. the fence was easily 1.5m tall but what's that to a pink ninja grrl?
