I was just taking a nice relaxing afternoon shower. Alex came running in.
A: Mom, we found a SKULL! A little tiny skull!
M: Is it a rat skull, from a rat that Traveler killed?
A: No, Mom. It's REAL! It's a real skull. It has little tiny teeth and everything.
I went out and, of course, it is a rat skull, with his nasty long yellow teeth protruding. Alex wanted to bring it in the house but she settled on setting it down in the garden. We were walking around looking at the plants and Alex started yelling excitedly.
A: LOOK, MOM! A big caterpillar!
M: Let me see. Yup, it's a tomato horn worm.
A: Oh, it's so cute! Let's take it inside!
M: Um, no. It's dead and we should leave it out here.
A: Does it eat lots of tomatoes?
M: Not anymore!
G: They are not that bad.
M: You gotta be kidding? They can completely defoliate a plant in like a day!
A: It's so cute. Let's put it with the rat skull.
