Last year, SugarBear started telling us about his "friends," Mark and Jerry. He often plays with them and they lived in our linen closet. Sometimes, they lived in a house about a mile from us with their dad. When we were driving, he could show us the exact house. It was the same one every time.
Soon Mark and Jerry were joined by several other "friends," Socko, Mocko, Oncko, and Tinko. I asked if any of his friends were girls. He told me that yes, Tinko is a girl and that she lives at Texas Tech (my alma mater) with another girl.
Me: "Really? What is that girl's name?"
Bear: (matter-of-factly) "Oh, I don't know. I've never met her."
