Conversations with Minty and Turi...



On vertebrates in fiction... 

Me [with disdain]: This book is terrible.
Minty: Why?
Me: There's no plot tension or character development.  It's all so saccharine, stereotyped and cliche.  I'm all for stories about unicorns and fairies but these just don't have any backbone.
Minty: they have lots of backbones in them.  The bunnies have backbones, and the puppy and the unicorn has a backbone.

Turi: Can I have a snack?
Me: Do you want some nuts… almonds, walnuts?
Turi: I want a different kind of nuts… I want doughnuts.
