“I have to do the thorax and the bottom still, Mommyo,” my daughter said, waving her handcrafted butterfly up and down to make it fly.

“Better get to it,” I said as nonchalantly as I could as I scurried over to Google to find out which part of the butterfly the thorax actually was.

Turns out it’s the bit between the head and the abdomen where the wings attach. (Thank you, Wikipedia.)
