Good question!

M squashed a mosquito yesterday and was busy rinsing the remains off of his hands when S walked in and said:

"Papa! That mosquito was a living thing and now you've killed it!"

"Oh. Ummm. Yeah. Well, maybe it wasn't dead. I just thought it might like to have a swim down the drain."

"OK, but then why are its head and arms still left in the sink?"

Heh. How'd he get out of that one?

He didn't- but I sure got a good laugh out of it. Especially since S used the word "arms". For some reason that made the whole exchange even funnier...
