Lunch meetings with your clients probably aren’t this delightful

A favorite lunchtime diversion with my eight-year-old students is “I’m thinking of an animal.” It basically 20 Questions, but we don’t stop at 20, and our only category is animal (Well, sort of; lately a few people have chosen pseudo-animals, like unicorns, making the question “Does it exist in reality?” almost as important as “Is it a mammal?”). This group of kids likes to get very specific. Snake is not an acceptable answer; Asp Viper is. This interaction happened at lunch yesterday.

Me: I’m thinking of an animal.
Student A: Does it fly?
Me: Yes.
Student B: Is it a Spectral Vampire Bat?
