Be sure to write it in perl, basic, or maybe logo ... at least pseudocode :)

#!/usr/bin/perl
my $jane = Girl->new(age => 7);
my $spot = Doggie::JackRusselTerrier->new();
$jane->see($s pot);
$jane->see($spot->run);

Wow. I can't believe I just wrote that ... must get out more...

The possible titles amuse me ...
Junie B. Jones Determines that Cleaning Her Room is NP-Complete
The Little Finite State Automaton That Could
Goldilocks and the Three SysAdmins
The Monsters in My Code

OK, it's late. My apologies for subjecting you all to my incoherent rambling ... mods, please mod me '-1 lame'

BTW, I tell my daughter that I write video games (I am a developer, but not a game developer) because, at 8, that is the only software that she can relate to.
