We were driving along the coast road, and Fainjin was admiring some particularly fine rocks. When he’s thinking out loud, there are often pauses…
“Hey Mum! If rocks had roots
then a round rock
would look like a squid!
(It would look like a squid, not an octopus, because it would have too many legs).”
Discussion ensued as there was some disagreement over whether squid are round. Eventually consensus was reached that the statement would be better applied to pointy rocks.
If rocks did have roots, like plants, that is.
