I didn’t have a chance yet to mention that Nougat had her baby on Tuesday, and it was a girl!
Mirin and Rose are thrilled to have a Twilight Sparkle at last, but Ethan is shockingly opposed to it. He’s put up the biggest stink about the name. He wants to call her Becky Thatcher–B.T. for short, like the bacterial toxin they genetically engineer into plants to kill things that eat them. Mirin and Rose had a poll going around the family with signatures in favor of Twilight Sparkle, but Ethan has been unmoved. I am surprised he cares so much about what names the goats have! He and the goats have a subtle war of wills going on at all times. He tries to have as little to do with the goats as possible, and the goats misbehave for him whenever they get the chance. When I pointed out they could have wanted to name her Pinky Pie, it didn’t cheer him up any. Actually, he almost gagged a little.
So among ourselves she is Twilight Sparkle, but around Ethan she is Nougat’s baby, and if you ask him she is Anything-Other-Than-Twilight-Sparkle.
I think she kind of looks like a Twilight Sparkle.
