S would like to know:
“When birds poop, does the poop get on the feathers around their fannies?”
And if so, “how do they clean it off?”
These questions were inspired by watching the mascot for the Louisville Cardinals at this weekend’s Carolina football game.
I think it had as much to do with the slightly constipated expression on the bird’s face as it did with the feathers shooting out the rear of the costume, but you’d have to ask S to be sure.
Anyway, while you’re talking to S about what inspired the questions, could you also please answer those questions for her?
I have studied educational theory for years, and still have absolutely no idea how to provide the information my children would really like to know.
