The Quick & the Dead.

Next to being witty, the best thing is being able to quote another's wit. ~ Christian Nestell Bovee.

Liddy, who is a pragmatic realist, a black & white thinker, & likes nothing more than a good debate, always says one thing living in this house taught her was how to argue well.  By that she means she learnt early not to make wild & random statements she couldn't support with documented evidence because she would be shot down in flames while her nearest & dearest bayed for her blood howling Burn, Baby, burn.  Have your own opinion by all means ~ but be prepared to defend it.

Indeed she learnt this lesson so well we spent her interim years with me being woken from a sound slumber to provide the amunition she needed to defend her position in late on~line chats with friends less happily endowed with an accomodating parent. 

Star has also grown up in this house & Liddy~like learnt early it was the quick or the dead but Star~like she has her own take on matters intellectual.  Rather than expend her brain power on thinking things through to a logical conclusion Star has developed into a wit; sharper than a wet cornflake. 

So I was having this random FB conversation [as you do] about wether or not the child was actually human ~ or one of the universe's  quirkier jokes ~ when quick as a flash the girl pops up: Definitely not human; just waiting for her super powers to kick in.

I'm not sure the rest of the world is ready for this child!

Thank you, ladies. Still not sure I like it. It's a bit much but I'm still tweaking & it may grow on me. ☺
