In honor of the Year of the Dragon I asked Ava a few questions about dragons so she could clear up any misconceptions I (or you) might have about them.
Here’s what she dictated for me to transcribe:
Description: They are red or green. Maybe gray. Dragons eat gas, chips, cornbread, grass, ham, and fruit snacks. They have wings like butterflies and they flap their wings to fly somewhere to get food. They are so cute. I like dragons, especially Figment. At Chinese New Year, people fit under dragons. (Editor’s note: She’s talking about the dragon dance.)
Where dragons live: Dragons live in China. Not where my sister lives but far, far away. Dragons live in trees.
Size: So big!
Life span: Dragons never die.
Habitat: Cold, rainy sometimes. They live with their moms, dads, brothers, sisters, and their dog.
Diet: (See above)
How do they behave? They don’t listen <insert a grrr and a foot stomp here for full effect>!
So now you know! Hope you enjoyed Ava’s take on the mythical dragon since it turns out he’s apparently not so scary after all.
We wish you all a happy and prosperous new year. Xin Nian Kuai Le!
