In the car, on the way home:

Me: Look, girls, a vulture up in the sky. Do you know what vultures eat?
Malia: Some vultures eat pizza.
Me: Noooo.
Anna: Meat?
Me: Yes, but what kind of meat?
Malia: Dad, T-rex eats meat!
Me: That’s right …

Whereupon I tried to explain why the vulture eats carrion. Anna knows she’s not supposed to eat dead squirrels and deer. Roadkill is for the vultures, we agreed.
