Going Extinct

Julianna (the seven-year-old): Daddy, besides dinosaurs, what other animals are extinct?
Me: Well, the Dodo Bird. And, the Woolly Mammoth.
J: What else?
Isabella (the five-year-old helps out): And, the skunk!

(silence)

J: No, I said EX-tinct. Not STINKED.
I: Oh… I don’t know what that word means. I’m only five. (pause.) But skunks DO stink! Hahaha!
