Worth a Thousand Words?

Aside

E2: What do you want me to draw?
Me: Uh… a beach ball

E2: See!
Me: Oh, that’s very good.
E2: (to her brother) What do you want me to draw?
E1: A hippocampus with a griffin on top of it
E2: What’s a hippocampus?
E1: It’s a part of the brain, and a griffin is half lion, half eagle.
E2: …
E1: And the griffin is eating an ostrich, tail first, and the ostrich is eating a baby and the baby is eating a worm and the worm is eating dirt and the dirt is eating space and space is eating time and time is eating the space-time continuum because it’s always being paired with space, which is always trying to eat time, and the space-time continuum is devouring the Earth because humans are trying to use it to teleport and time travel, but the Earth is being burnt by the Sun and the Sun is being devoured by Betelgeuse, which is exploding in a giant supernova, which in turn is being exploded by dark matter, which is being eaten by dark energy, which is being eaten by Winnie-the-Pooh. Which is being eaten by honey. Which is being eaten by a chandelier. I don’t know why there’s a chandelier, but it didn’t like the honey.
E2: …
E2: I can’t draw that.
