The Pony has an anatomy class taught by Arch Nemesis. They are working on the circulatory system.
"Hey, Mom. Today in anatomy, were were discussing the flow of blood through the heart. At the end of the lecture, Mrs. Nemesis put the heart model on my desk. It's 3-D, like a model you can take apart and see inside. She said, 'Anyone who wants to, you can come look at this and trace the blood flow step by step.' Then she looked at me. 'You should probably look at it, since obviously you don't have one.'"
"Well, I guess that's kind of accurate."
"How long are we going to be here until you're ready to go?"
"Not long. I don't have any papers to grade tonight. And I'm FREEZING. I don't want to sit in front of this window any more. There's a cold draft."
"It's probably the chill seeping from where my heart should be."
The Pony is sometimes quite in tune with his peccadilloes.
