Monica: Mommy, are yetis real?
Me: <not awake>...umm, what <in my head...yetis? where do they get these ideas??> ....yetis? I don't know...I don't think so...no, yetis are not real.
Lauren <with an air of absolute authority>: They are real.
Monica <wide-eyed>: How do YOU know??
Lauren: I know EVERYTHING!
Monica: Oh yeah??? Do you know ALL the planets?? Even the ones that INDIANS came from??
Lauren: I sure do!
Monica: How do you even know this stuff???
Lauren is just laughing. I see the mischief in her eyes, and I have to smile, as well. She knows that she doesn't know everything, but she is delighted to have fooled her sister, even for just a moment.
The yeti conversation continues in the next room. I hear Monica say something about "they inhabit the Himolays", or something of that nature. Out of pure curiosity, I google "yeti"
- In the folklore of Nepal, the Yeti (//) or Abominable Snowman (Nepali: हिममानव himamānav, lit. "snow man") is an ape-like entity taller than an average human that is said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet.
