Signs we may have been watching too much Star Trek

The Six-Year-Old, politely: “Mommyo, can I tell you something?”

Mommyo, warmly: “Of course.”

The Six-Year-Old, informatively: “Spaying works on tribbles, but not neutering.”

Mommyo, carefully: “OK.”

The Six-Year-Old, disgustedly: “Yeah. Had to find that one out the hard way.”

Looks like Captain Kirk had to find out the hard way too. (Image via Pollyanna Rainbow Sunshine and the Needles of Doom, aka Best Named Blog Ever.)

About Shala Howell

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, muse about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
