The Irony of It

I was so excited to learn that Lauren had passed the R.A.C.E. Piano Exam Level 8 that I phoned her at the house where she was spending the night with two of her best friends. I told her that I had very good news for her - she had passed her piano exam! I heard her whisper the reason for my call to her two friends in the background.

"Oh, she said. " I thought you were calling about Nova." (Sounds of parental bubble bursting.)
Nova is a pony for sale that Lauren found on the Internet and dreams about owning. What is it about horses that takes over a young girl's very soul?
