Heidi’s Attempt to Educate Me

Child on TV: I like Komodo Dragons because they are not afraid of anything.

Me: Is that true?

Heidi: Mom! There is no such thing as dragons!

Me: There are Komodo Dragons. They are big lizards, not dragons. It’s just their name. Like a Bulldog isn’t really a bull.

Heidi: Do you really not know why they call Bulldogs a BULLDOG? And why they call a Bullmastiff a BULLMASTIFF?

Me: Because they Bulldog used to work with Bulls?

Heidi: No! Because Bulldogs are strong like a bull. And a Bullmastiff is big like a bull. You really didn’t know that?

Me: Nope, I guess not.
