One of the games I used to like as a little girl was dressing up like a lady. What makes a lady? She certainly is taller than a girl – all the ladies we knew: our mothers, our grandmothers, our neighbours. So a girl will need long legs or at least high heels and long dresses (the short ones came a lot later when we wanted to look like women, which are a different breed from ladies) in order to be a lady. Then, in order to look like a lady, a girl needs a hat – she has to climb on a chair (or even two chairs on top of each other) to reach the shelf where her mother keeps the most fluffy hat she owns (she's never been seen wearing it, so it must be really precious). Then she only need a mirror or, even better, some friends to admire her attire.
