Becoming Real

Real isn't how you are made. It's a thing that happens to you. When your child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.
Becoming real doesn't happen overnight to people. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shappy. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real, you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.
