Carrot Juice

Andrew goes to swim practice twice a week.

Driving home with him is always entertaining because it usually involves detailed descriptions of an animal video game he’s played at a friends house.

If we’re not talking about video game animals than we are talking about animals in general.

Tonight, we talked about flamingos.

While he was describing the enclosure he set up for the flamingos in the video game, I asked, “Why are flamingos pink?”

Andrew said, “It’s because of the carrot juice in the shrimp they eat.”

“You mean the carotene in the shrimp?”

“Yes, that’s what I said. The carrot juice that’s in the shrimp.”
