On the intricacies of regurgitation.

[I am feeling a little weird in the digestive system.] Hm. I nearly vomited just now.

Did you have bile?

Nope. Just some vomit right up in my throat.

I find that bile is often the precursor to vomit.

On observations.

[Allie is doing an online spelling exercise that includes a talking cat who reads out the words for her to spell, often in context to indicate homonyms.]

Huh. I’m not sure this cat would be such a good conversationalist.

Oh, no?

Pretty much all his sentences are non sequiturs.

On being careful, poetically.

[Allie has climbed part-way up a large tree in the park.]

Hey Mum! I am wearing sandals today so I could take but a few tentative steps up this tree.

On the comforts of ocular compliance.

Sometimes my glasses are a great comfort to me. Not only is it more comfortable to have them when I am reading, when I put my hand up to my face and feel their smooth caress, it is very pleasant.

On losing one’s train of thought, hilariously.

Wait! WUT? What was my penultimate point going to be? Arg! I forget!!!!!!!
