Real conversation with Alastair tonight:
We'd been discussing alpacas, since we'd seen them at the State Fair of VA. Amanda or I made some silly comment about having an alpaca, and where it would be kept.
Alastair: He could stay in the FRONT YARD! (he tends to yell his punch lines)
Me: But how could we keep him from going in the road?
Alastair: He could stay in MY ROOM! No no no: that's silly. He could stay in the COMPUTER ROOM! It'd be hard to check your e-mail!
