Me: Oh, the tortoise is about to walk across my keyboard.
Me: Is what she has to say.
Me: The first key she pressed was Caps Lock. What a clever tortoise she is.
Philip: You could get an Arts Council Grant for that, you know.
Philip: She needs her own blog, of course.
Me: I don’t want my tortoise reduced to the level of Tracey Emin. She has some dignity, and can probably spell better.
(For those of you looking at your keyboards and wondering how on earth you type that walking across a keyboard, her front feet are narrow and often go between the keys, while her back feet are quite round and almost always press.)
I put Charlemagne in front of the webcam to treat Vector to a tortoise-watching session over Skype.
