|07:50 pm - Funnyism for the day|
One of Leila's favorite dinosaurs is a thing called the compsognathus. I don't even have a handle on what this creature looks like or anything, but Leila likes it a whole real bunch and will give little talks about its habits, like she does with just about every other animal on the planet. She loves them all.
So today, apparently (I wasn't around; Charles witnessed this) Leila spake thusly:
"The compsognathus uses its tail for preschool story hour."
Well, of course it does! What else would it do?
Jane Yolen could write her 678695985th book about it: How Do Dinosaurs Go to Preschool Storytime?
ask her if she likes the ankylosaurus. that was always my favorite dinosaur.
a compsognathus was a docile dinosaur with a very strange skull. kinda like a nerd t. rex.
I like the ankylosaurus because it reminds me of ankles, and that's funny.
Does she have the Dinotopia books?
Nope. At this point I bet she'd dig the pictures.
The fact that she can even say the word "compsognathus" puts her one up on me.
