Wild Animals

"Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end."
Leonard Nimoy as 'Spock'

Pip and Crazybaby have a small collection of plastic animals that they play with, and the other day a few creatures made it into the tub for bath time. Pip was playing with a seal. "Dad," Pip asked, "is a seal a wild animal?"
"Well, we've seen seals swimming in the ocean haven't we?" Daddy-O asked.
"Yes," said Pip.
"And animals that live in the ocean are wild animals."
Pip looked down at the seal in her hand. "But what if they live in the tub?"
