Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Seven pretty little girls sitting in a row. Seven pretty little girls giggling. Some with braces, some with pert noses, some with blond hair, some with brown, all of them are pretty little girls. Then the general enters the room with a grim expression on his craggy face, and a wary look in his eye as he contemplates the seven pretty little girls.

"An enemy is approaching," he says.

Some of the pretty little girls sigh, some roll their eyes, and some accept the statement with no sign of discontent. All of them close their eyes and begin to imagine.
