Earlier while I’m standing in line at Jayson Home & Garden, Sophia sits on a cowhide covered chair and asks, “Was this cow dead already when they decided to take it’s skin?” I think and answer, “Yes. That cow was very, very old and had wandered up on a grassy hill at sunset to lay down under a beautiful tree where she fell asleep and passed away while dreaming about rainbows.”
Sophia’s response: “No she didn’t. They shot her and used the meat.”
