At home with the next Frida Kahlo

And then she pointed to her face and the apparently obvious moustache on it, growing just above a huge grin - that funny, confident, expectant grin of a little kid who still gets praise for simple things like matching games, who believes she just identified a match, and is now sitting back and waiting for the lavishing of the praise to commence.
