Scene: Bedtime for two toddlers. A father is reading a bedtime story or three. For his amusement and that of his wife and two toddlers, he changes up storylines, plots, characters, or entire subtexts. This is not unusual.
Dad: (Riffing on “Sesame Street Presents: Big and Little”) Snuffleuppagusses have big furry tails. Prairie Dawn has a little bitty fuzzy tail.
The boys (laughing uproariously): No! Prairie Dawn no have tail.
Dad: That’s right!
Boy #1: Prairie Dawn has a tushie.
Dad: Yes. She has a little tushie.
Boy #1: (looking at his mother) Mommy has a big tushie.
