How many?

Lizzie: Mom, how many legs does an octopus have?

Mom: They have 8 legs. Oct- means 8.

Lizzie: Hmmm... 1...1 and a half.... 1 and 3/4.... Mom, my octopus doesn't look right.

Mom: Let me see seems to be missing a few legs.

Lizzie: Knightly! What have you done to my octopus that Scooby, Shaggy, and Scout gave to me?

Knightly: Well, you see, I have heard that octopus tastes good so I had to give it a try.

Lizzie: This isn't a real octopus! It's a toy - MY toy! And you have ruined it!

Mom: Knightly, you need to apologize to Lizzie. You should not have eaten her toy. You know you aren't allowed to eat that kind of stuff.

Knightly: I am sorry, Lizzie. To make it better, why don't I just eat the last leg off so he will look better?

Lizzie: Hmmph! I think you owe me a new toy.

Mom: I agree. Knightly, no treats for you until we find another octopus.

Knightly (with a sigh): Sisters are a pain!

Heh...Buddah's octopus looks alot like that, only I think it was the head he ripped off. The Woman bought him a new one, but it just wasnt the same...

Oh Knightly, my twin, I'm sure if you did this it was an unavoidable accident, and you're terribly sorry about it. I know you'd never eat a red & white octopus, which is my very, very favorite toy, too.

Eeek, that octopus certainly has seen better days. Mine still has all its legs. But I don't play with it that often, I spend more time pulling the feathers off my feather sticks - now, they DO look tatty!

I think you deserve a new octopus, Lizzie. I have seen them in other colors, too. Maybe a differently colored one wouldn't look so tasty to Knightly.
