I'm not angry. What makes you think that?
My point wasn't to create an oxymoron (Which has now become the plot-focus), but to reveal the paradox.
'grr' is my 'huh?'
I don't do angry. Except above - As a description.
Why would you call a turtle by a human name? It's a turtle!
I have a good name for a turtle - "Put me back in the sea, stupid frikkin ape".
We extended George's life. He was a goner - until my daugther discovered him at the bottom of a pool. She dove in and saved him - he now is living in our house enjoying safety from all predators.
Now that his shell is hardened we can set him free - his life would have been over as a pool is not an environment in which a baby snapping turtle would survive.
