Just now as she was reading to me, her book contained sentence, "Alice had named the pig she talked to, and now the man who owned it couldn't butcher it." Under her breath, the_child muttered, "I don't see why not."

And this morning she announced to me that last night she had punched herself in the face repeatedly to knock out a loose tooth.

That's my kid... way tougher than me.

I don't see why not either (but then I spent my teen years on a farm in a Third World country, unsentimental about pigs R us).
