Pete's brother David called from Boston last night to check in on how Graceful is doing (much better, thank you very much) and to talk with both girls.
Elegant was telling him about how hot it was today, "I think it was about 300 degrees or something like that." [backpedaling] "Well, maybe only in the 90s. I don't really know."
Then, telling him about her new chocolate-scented pencils and erasers and commenting that he can't actually smell them, she said, "If you really could smell what's on the other end of the phone, you'd smell my ear wax."
This led to a whole conversation between David and Elegant about what he could smell. Apparently, Elegant's ear wax smelled like broccoli and cauliflower, Elegant's boogers were like roses, and so forth. I think he's totally tapped into her sense of humor.
