What are little girls made of?
What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice
And all that’s nice,
That’s what little girls are made of.

~ From a rhyme that first appeared in a manuscript by English poet Robert Southey (1774–1843), as documented by Peter and Iona Opie, authors of The Oxford Dictionary of Nursery Rhymes (1951). ~

I can’t answer for the rest of the old saying, but this little girl is certainly sugar-coated as she enjoys what’s left of her fried dough.

Portrait shot September 5, 2010 at the Haddam Neck (Connecticut) Agricultural Fair.*
