Thanks for jogging my memory, Aquinas! We used to play alphabet games with our oldest and, while we do other letter games, I'd forgotten the fun we had alternating letters for fruits, flowers, etc.

Here's my anecdote from DS3's trip to the dentist this morning:

Hygienist: Would you like a toothbrush with dolphins or one with butterflies?

DS3, considering: That's interesting that you are offering me two creatures, neither of which walk on land. Dolphins swim and butterflies usually fly and I happen to like both swimming creatures and flying insects... or anything that flies, really. Was there something about me that made you think I'd like animals who move in those ways more than animals who walk... or are those the only choices?
