Note on the Care and Feeding of Devils

In the car last night, on the way home from a friend's house after dinner. Mama and Daddy are discussing friend's son's swimming accomplishments:

Mama: He swims a 50 in 31 seconds? Damn!

Devil, ensconced in her Eddie Bauer throne in the back seat: Dan!

Mama: That's quick.

Devil: Dat's quick.

Mama: Mynah bird.

Devil: Mynah...I not mynah bird Mama.
