“Lynne, where did Calvin go?” Adonis asked.
“The Connecticut Dinosaur Truck drove by and he ran after it in hopes of seeing some dinosaurs.”
“I remember when we chased after the ice cream trucks! Now, kids chase dinosaur trucks,” he laughed.
“Mom, Dad, I’m home,” Calvin yelled.
“What kind of plastic and rubber dinosaurs did you see, Calvin?” Adonis asked.
“Dad! They weren’t made of plastic and rubber. All of them were real!” Calvin explained.
Calvin spoke breathtakingly, ” There were Sauropods and Raptors. The Sauropod was a Brachiosaurus with a long gentle neck, and he was lazily plucking leaves off the top of trees. The Raptor was a Velociraptor with three-fingered hands and curved claws on each foot, covered with feathers.”
“Calvin, you know what I told you about exaggerating. You have your facts right, but not the part about them being real.”
Suddenly, there was a loud noisy in front of the house. Adonis looked out the window and saw a huge Brachiosaurus lazily plucking leaves off the top of the trees.
