Extinction

   'Of course, our Donald's dinosaur mad. All day long it's 'dinosaurs this' and 'dinosaurs that' with Donald. He's got all the DVDs and even the old ones they don't show any more on VCR. And the books that boy has! The Big Book of Dinosaurs, The Dinosaur Pet Guide, Walking with Dinosaurs, The Dinosauria...He's just obsessed with the things. He puts his sandwiches in a dinosaur lunchbox and puts on dinosaur pyjamas and sleeps under a dinosaurs quilt. He just loves them.'
   'How old is he now?' 
'Just turned thirty-nine. There's still time to meet a nice girl, I'm sure.

*giggle* Love it.

So casual - and such nice frustration underlying it.

Heheh! Whatever floats your boat.

So long as he's happy, that's what really counts. :)
