a dinosaur with spines down its back is "tunoksaurus". one with a swelling at the top of its head, "bukolsaurus". a blue one with impossibly spindly tail and neck i baptized "niwangsaurus". the red one is now "pulasaurus". the other one i conveniently called a "coronasaurus", even though, strictly speaking, the feature from which the name was culled is more like queen elizabeth's neck ruffles than a tiara of any kind. the other one was a no-brainer, everybody knows a tyranosaurus when they see one.
five years from now, if we're both lucky, diego will stop believing everything i say.
