Me: "We'll take him." *pats moose on the bunny-garbed head*
Elayna: "My mommy collects them."
Barista: "Oh, I just started collecting them. Aren't they cute?"
Elayna: "Very cute! But also very confused."
Barista, also very confused: "Confused?"
Elayna: "Well, yes. See - he thinks he's a bunny. When he's clearly a moose. He's confused. Mommy collects the confused ones. She also has a bear who thinks he's a moose, a moose who thinks he's a duck - lots of them."
Me, with the assist, seeing no way out of this conversation: "We take them in, seeing as it's clear that they'll have trouble functioning in the outside world. They're very misunderstood."
Barista: "I... see."
Me: "And a large Campfire Mocha with no whipped cream, please."
This is a normal day for us.
I need to take pictures of the collection.
