you’re going to have to explain “playing possum” to him…https://writingexplained.org/idiom-dictionary/playing-possum
Not surprising a kid his age would not get the reference.
It’s the only possum the kid has ever seen.. a completely rational deduction. Meanwhile.. grandma was not playing possum.. she was in fact, quite dead.
Actually, that would be armadillo
Not if you’re in the Midwest.
