I prefer the word “coagulates”. As demonstrated by this in-car conversation I had with the kids yesterday:

Alex: “Zoe, what do you want to be when I grow up?”

Zoe: “A My Little Pony”

Alex: “Can little girls actually become plastic ponies?”

Zoe: “No, Daddy. Don’t be silly. I want to be a real My Little Pony. Once I’m old enough to leave home, I just have to wish for it.”

Alex:Oh. I see. James, what do you want to be when you grow up?”

James: “An eggy!”

Alex: “You want to be an egg?”

James: “Yes”

¬†Zoe: “Daddy, what do you want to be when you grow… oh, wait, you’ve already grown up.”
