Katya and Yurtle the Turtle

My science teacher has sent home specimens. Frogs, perch, and a turtle. Katya has been fascinated by it all. She prefers her animals dead, you see. She would never touch a live frog, or fish, or turtle, but dead=safe, so we’ve been encouraging her to look at the specimens, tying in the correlation between the animal’s body parts and her own.

Today Katya and I examined the turtle, which she enjoyed. Afterwards I asked Katya to pose. She really, really tried,


even though she didn’t feel like it. 082

But she thought of something funny–me, probably–and smiled.087

May Yurtle the Turtle rest in peace.083
