    Elly is training children in manners. This would be an ingrained response from observing her children

    You’ve ended up in SteampunkLand. leftwingpatriot was right, run. Fun to visit, hard to live in (though not really more insane than her usual life, so maybe she’ll manage)

    my Sheltie did that too. High energy pup. Once took 15 items from her in first half of a TV show and no idea how she got to 5 of them because I know where they were and I’ve never seen her get to something there. She spent next half hour with the person watching TV in a room with little in it

    My Sheltie started doing that only to the water bowl in this room and only when (in her short-attention-span opinion) I’d been reading or on the computer too long and thus she was being horribly neglected. Which is why she hasn’t had water in this room for a while. Yes, of course there’s water elsewhere

    Well, he could have done the music again today- as parents will do for something that keeps Baby happy and occupied, you know, long enough to start the washing machine

    My father teaches college biochemistry. He is teaching engineers, nurses, pre-med, future pharmacists, future forensic scientists, and people going into environmental science (figuring out how to help the polluted lakes and oceans, not just climate change, for the record) He teaches things for the specific field (and tries to figure out why the football people are recommending all their students be engineers, based on math skills, not happening for all but 1 so far). But even the skills not related to your future plan teach you how to think, how to analyze, etc. Knowing my illness would not allow me to work (was half-time, still missed a lot of classes and had to work with profs and use disability services) I didn’t get the teaching degree with my history major/psych minor, but I know how to analyze and combine large amounts of written material and how to tell people the skills I used to earn that degree

    It’s little kiddie music, which tends to be played endlessly to keep baby happy. So after a while anyone but the baby (or toddler) would welcome the asteroid

    The woman in the story makes her living as a lawyer, the girl is 10 and playing with her friend, which means she’s playing pretend with ideas, which is what she’s supposed to do. And this is a comic so the girl can take it farther than a human 10 year old can get away with because she is literally not in reality. The dragon, who is so oblivious to the constraints of reality he turned his property into a separate nation and ran for President several times, is male. And Ozy, as he points out to several people over the run, has to live with whatever idea his dad’s running with

    Don’t remember where but once heard something about how cases were decided by people too stupid to get out of jury duty. Resolved to not act to make that a reality (summoned once, went in, we were assigned to the room for selection, waited a half hour more, while the accused settled out of court)
