What you learn from a Ph.D. in marine biology

August 29, 2008 Jordana

We’ve been reading The Flip-Flap Body Book with Ngaire. She’s picking up details from it surprisingly quickly, and is showing some flair at comparative anatomy and physiology, causing much attendant craziness. Witness:

Ngaire: This is Lightning McQueen’s brain [pointing to the front roof of a small toy].
Me: Where is Lightning McQueen’s womb?
Ngaire: Here [pointing to his undercarriage].
Me (to the Husbandlet and Adrian and Jessica): Hey, apparently Lightning McQueen has both a brain and a womb!
The Husbandlet: You know what that makes him?
Jessica: A woman?
The Husbandlet: No, one of those … you know …
Me: Those?
The Husbandlet: You know, those horse fish things.
Me: You mean … a seahorse?

Yes, that’s what he meant.

Husbandlet here: In my defense, I’ve never claimed to be an ichthyologist. I only study animals with fewer vertibrae than I have. Shoot, I’ve never taken a class on fish, unless you count gourmet cooking …
