litmus test

My daughter startled out of one of her quiet, thinky spells with this question the other night, "If you had to have a magical creature living in your attic, and what you really wanted was a centaur, but you could only choose a hag or a werewolf, which would you pick?"

She said she can tell a lot about a person based on their answer, but when I asked what she can tell, she hmphed. Who am I to know her secrets?

Wait, a hag is a magical creature? I thought that was me before I had a couple cups of coffee? Hmm.

maybe that's part of her psych analysis, deb! but she does insist that the old, gnarled hag character is only found in the magical world, therefore, despite any specific magical qualities, is still a magical creature. (that's a near verbatim quote, i just asked for her references).

Well, she's the expert, I'm not going to doubt her! I tried to call you tonight, I had a cooking question, but it all worked out in the end.
