Look at the pretty little hand with its festooned nails on the right and tell me if you think they could cut up a pet’s dead little body and perform an autopsy to determine the cause of death!?
You’ve heard me say that Katie Bug has a high interest in forensic investigation and other things relating to medicine, so it may not come to you as much of a shock to learn that she can, in fact, take a knife to something she once loved!
She came home the other day to find that her Gecko, Nigel, had succumbed to the ill effects of living in the wilds of a cage with a sandy floor. Instead of fretting over it much, she promptly takes a razor blade from the bathroom and commences to lay the little bugger open! With every motion of the blade and organ discovery, she gives a blow-by-blow account to her mother, who is by now astonished and cowering in a corner at the scene on the kitchen table, and saying supportive things like, “Eewww!”
Katie laid out the heart and lungs, the intestines – both the long and short of them, and then opens the stomach, describing in full detail to her mother. “Ah, a pure case of dehydration,” she announces!
“And how do you know that,”
“Simple mom, the stomach is full of sand…dry sand…duh, no water!”
Just then Eddie walks into the room and
“I’m doing an autopsy on Nigel…he died,” Katie tells him matter-of-factly. “What do you want me to do with him?”
Her Granny and I got a full account last night during American Idol…this is the second time she’s spent the night with us this week. What have we done to deserve this blessing?!
