Preferred nomenclature

The Ladybug: … and then Mary Ann and I played on the monkey bars.  We had so much fun.  Can I set up a play date with Mary Ann soon?

Me: Mary Ann?  I thought you and she didn’t really get along.

LB: Yeah, she used to be my enemy, but lately she’s been much nicer, and so now she’s my friend.

Me: Ah.  A “frenemy.”

LB: No, a “frenemy” is someone who started out as a friend but becomes your enemy.  Mary Ann started out as my enemy but became my friend.  I guess that makes her my “end.”
