Last evening at a bookstore, Father P suggests books to buy:
FP: Why don't you buy Gerald Durell? I used to love reading his books as a kid.
Me: What does he write on?
FP: He catches and preserves exotic animals... he writes on how he catches them
Me: Interesting *picks up a book* 'My family and other and other animals'.. *Hints* I wonder who he was writing about.
FP: His adolescent daughter probably.
Me: *feigns anger* How rude!
FP: You're right! Sorry. If it was about his daughter he'd have named it 'My daughter. There's no other animal like her.'
