Me: This dessert is spectacular.
Maeve: (thoughfully) Spectacular means... sort of... sticky. But only in the summertime.
Yesterday Maeve explained to my aunt that insects have tiny hands at the end of their legs, and that they only live outside and eat pizza. Bug pizza, she insisted. We don't argue with these explanations unless she actually asks us a question, because it's simply not worth debunking her fascinating notions.
And really, they're an incredible window into how her mind works.
