Some of the weirdest conversations we have around here happen before the rooster crows. Maybe it’s the way our brains wake up. Or maybe we’re not really awake.
ME: Why do alligators have such a powerful bite? That seems unfair to the rest of the animal kingdom.
PONTILICIOUS: What? It’s 5:30 in the morning. I can’t answer something like that right now.
ME: No wonder they have been around since prehistoric times. They can eat a dump truck. And why do think dinosaurs existed?
PONTILICIOUS: I have no idea.
ME: Why would something so mean, aggressive and destructive be put on earth?
PONTILICIOUS: You’re looking at it all wrong. They were survivors. They were just trying to survive.
ME: They were unnecessarily big and assholes. It was uncalled for. I mean, why not oversized fluffy bunnies? Why did earth not consist of them instead of dinosaurs?
PONTILICIOUS: What is wrong with you?
