Is that Clear?

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to sit outside and soak up the sun while sipping an iced mocha at a coffee shop I frequent. I sat outside, next door to a plumbing store. Just outside the door, a little mite of a girl-child (maybe 4 or 5 years old) had been given the responsibility of keeping the family dog outside of the store while mom did some shopping. She stood just inside of the open doors, leash in hand, and firmly admonished the puppy that the store was not a place for him. To add impact to her admonishment and to clarify where things stood, she then said to the puppy, "Is that clear?!"
