Have you met a Japanese Turtle before?
No? Neither have I,... and I missed the opportunity when I was not selected as a parent volunteer to go with Little D's class for their field trip to the zoo yesterday. :(
She was all excited when she came home from the zoo and was telling me all about the animals that they saw. Then she said: Do you know that we saw a Japanese turtle??
Me: Huh? How did you know it was a Japanese turtle? Did it speak Japanese to you?
Little D: No Mum! Turtles dont talk. Duh! (Yes, she actually used the "Duh" word on me!)
Me: Then how did you know it was Japanese?
Little D: Bryan told me, and I too saw the Japanese words near the turtle!!
(Her friend and partner for the field trip, Bryan is half Japanese)
