And Now We Know

Elizabeth: “I think I’m going to draw a picture of what Dr. Claw might really look like.”

Me: “That reminds me. You have one more Inspector Gadget dvd coming in from Netflix, and that’ll be the last of them.”

Elizabeth: “I wonder if THIS TIME we’ll finally get to see Dr. Claw’s face!”

Me: “I don’t think they ever showed his face. I think it’s just one of those great mysteries of life that’s never revealed.”

Elizabeth: “Like the Onceler. You only ever see his hands and arms.”

Me: “Like how many licks it takes to get to the tootsie roll center of a Tootsie Pop.”

Elizabeth: “Oh, I know that one. I counted once.”

Me: “You did? How many licks does it take?”

Elizabeth: “Four hundred ninety.”

How I love that child. She always goes that extra mile so the rest of us don’t have to.
