So says the nearly 6 year old expert in the back of the car.
And it goes a little something like this….
Delaney, “Mommy, we’re working on the letter ‘Y’ in school.”
Cooper, “Me too”
Me: “What starts with ‘Y’?”
A chorus of “yell”, “yippee”, “yellow”, “yarn”, “yard” fills the car.
Me: (thinking this *might* be a trick question) What ANIMAL starts with ‘Y’.
They verbally frog-hop over each to answer: “A YAK!!!!!!”
The whispering begins.
Delaney, “Cooper….do you know what is the sneakiest, neakiest animal that ever walked this earth? THE YAK!”
Me: (thinking) “Who knew?”
Delaney continues, “Do you know the sneakiest, neakiest thing they do? They SPY on Zebras on the Savannah. To try to steal their stripes. AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE? If you touch their horns, they will BITE you!”
Insert appropriately timed screech from Coop, “They BITE?”
Delaney, nodding sagely, “Yes! And they are SNEAKY!”
Normally, I’d write this off as both imagination and entertainment, but now, I’m really wondering….
Are Yaks sneaky?
