“Remember that turtle you had last summer? And you guys were really, really into him for like, two weeks. And you talked to him, and you fed him. And you took him everywhere with you, right? But after a while, you know, you guys got busy with other things. So the water never got changed, and nobody fed him. And like two months later, Debs, you wanted to show off Walter to your friend Susie. And you guys started looking for him, and when you found him, he was all dried up and dead. Now see, you guys are that turtle, okay? And Dad's you.”
