Graphite: RIP

L's hamster, Graphite, died last night. As anyone who has read this blog before knows, small critter death is not terribly uncommon here at the Academy, and while we are sad and tears are often shed when they die, it's also recognized as a normal part of life.

J (he's convinced he's going to be a doctor): "I wonder what his bones look like."
Daddy: "Should we cut him open and see?"
J: "Yeah!"
L: "Uh...I'd appreciate it if you didn't do that."

About 10 minutes later.....

Z (the philosophical one): "I wonder what happens to hamsters when they die?"
J: "Dad says they harden."
