I had visited the blog editorial dashboard last night to remedy some errors.
This morning I found an earnest discussion in progress about one of the changes I had made.
“Well should it be Turtle or Tortoise?” Sprite was asking.
“We have one of each here at Sprite’s Site” said Intellectual Dabrowski. “The one who dances with the Lobster Quadrille is Turtle and the one who participated in the experiment for Seth Godin and the Roman Riding demonstration is Tortoise”
“Jo called them both Turtle” said Sprite.
“I know!” said Intellectual “I had to get Sir Richard Attenborough to sort her out and then Parfait and I made her fix it last night. I wanted her to write a retraction and an apology to both of them but she wanted to just sneak in the change and hope we didn’t notice!”
“She shouldn’t just sneak the change in because we would keep on calling Tortoise Turtle and he wouldn’t like that!” said Sprite.
It’s fun calling people by the wrong name! I do it all the time!” said Little Bully Black Dog. “It is funny!”
“No, name calling is not funny – it is just mean!” said Sprite “I didn’t like being called Spit Spite and Ginger Pony didn’t like being called Peefa and Sensual Dabrowski doesn’t like being called Itchy”
“But I don’t think Jo would want to be mean” continued Sprite. “Maybe she doesn’t always recognise people’s faces.”
“Well she doesn’t need to recognise faces to tell the difference between Turtle and Tortoise” said Intellectual “It is easier to tell by looking at their feet. Tortoise has feet and Turtle has flippers.”
Intellectual launched into a lengthy discussion about Comparing and Contrasting Turtle and Tortoise until Little Bully Black Dog became bored and went away to dig a hole in the garden and chew up some cushions.
Imaginational Dabrowski stayed to listen but soon drifted off into his own thoughts.
…TORTOISE = FEET… TURTLE = FLIPPERS… TORTLE or TURTOISE = FEET + FLIPPERS … TURQUOISE TURTOISE = AWESOME SUPER CREATURE
