Overheard

October 28, 2010

A Conversation in the bathroom; one child in the shower, one doing something else often done in that room.

Peter: Lily, did you know people are animals?
Lily: Yes.
Peter: (astounded) How did you know that?
Lily: That’s just what people are.
Peter: Animals can’t talk.
Lily: Yes–people can talk and we are animals. Other animals can’t talk to us, but they can talk to each other. But not to us–people don’t understand their talking.
Peter: (after a moment’s thought) I think Amos must be an animal.
