How mad scientists are made16 Mar 2013
Talking to my clones today during their St. Patrick’s Day preparations:
Me: (skeptical) So you’ve filled your leprechaun trap with lots of food?
Lucy: Yeah, there’s lots to eat in there.
Sadie: We don’t want him to escape, but we can’t really hold him in there, so we want him to decide to stay all night.
Lucy: Yes, he won’t want to leave.
Me: So won’t he need a potty?
Both: OOOOOH! WHAT A GREAT IDEA!
Sadie: I’m going to make an outhouse so he will go outside and then come back in to eat more!
Lucy: Mine is going to be an INSIDE toilet.
Sadie: Hey, we could collect his DNA!
Sadie: Thanks, Daddy, you have the greatest ideas!
Lucy: Yes, you’re brilliant, Daddy!
Sadie: (walks away with evil laugh) We’re going to get leprechaun DNA!
