"Why can't I breathe fire?"

"Not all dragons do," I explained.

"Why can't I fly?"

"You're not... that kind of dragon."

She stomped her foot, "I'm a useless dragon then!"

"Not at all!" I reconsidered my answer and hugged her, "Actually, you could learn how to fly."

"I could?"

"In a few years you can get a pilot's licence, and once you do, I'll give you any plane you want."

And she bounced in the way all small excited humans do.

option b - baby penguin gets told "you can fly", grows up to be pilot penguin (with the other being surprised)
