Trevor and I are halfway through our Kidding Around class and it has been great fun so far! The prompt for the halfway point was to invent an animal that is half one thing and half another and write about it.
Trevor made a creature that is half rabbit (of course) and half dragon. He called his character Rabbigon. I'd interpreted the assignment to mean that our critter should have a mix of characteristics from both parent animals, while Trevor interpreted the assignment to make a critter that is literally half of one thing and half of another.
While he loved doing the drawing, Trevor grumbled and complained about doing the writing. Writing is his absolute least favorite thing to do and the only subject at school that does not come easily and naturally for him. He made no effort to spell words correctly or to elaborate about Rabbigon. I let it go. This class is for fun, so any writing he does for the class is better than no writing at all.
I chose to invent a Giraffapus. I love how he turned out.
I amused myself by listing his predators as lionfish and tiger sharks. I realized later that I should have said leopard sharks, since tigers don't eat giraffes. Oh well.
