This afternoon my daughter, age 10, was trying to convince her friend, also female, that a drawing had been given to her in particular and not to the two of them jointly. Her trump argument was that the donor had said in handing it to my daughter, "Here, this is for you" and not "This is for you guys". Connecticut born and bred. Larry
