ME IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT: So, Leda, darling. We’re getting some new animals at home. Can you guess what they will be? What animal is born out of an egg?
LEDA, REGALLY IN HER BOOSTER SEAT, DRESSED IN A PINK SATIN TINKERBELLE DRESS AND RUBBER BOOTS: A dinosaur!
ME: No. What animal – that is not extinct – is born out of an egg?
LEDA: A peacock!
LEDA: Nana, they are so born from eggs.
ME: You’re right Leda, but I don’t think Chucker and I are getting peacocks. What do you think we are getting? OK, I’ll tell you. Chickens.
LEDA: Hugo [at day care] was scratched by his chicken when he fell off the roof.
ME: Our chickens won’t scratch you.
