Kindergarten  music class today...during which, btw, we did not mention dinosaurs in either conversation or songs....

Laney*   Ms. N, I have to tell you something really important.  Really, really important.

Laney*   Dinosaurs do NOT live in zoos.

Me         Oh?  Where do they live?

Laney*  In Heaven, silly!
