last night it was about the complicated varieties of possible manifestations of the souls of the departed. represented by dinosaurs. someone was explaining it all to me and showing me these little plastic dinosaurs (brother bear: totally like the ones we had! but a little bit bigger, and no dogosaurus, sadly) and depending on the circumstances of the person's passing, they would come into different dinosaurs. sometimes when things changed for them (when they had delivered the message that they needed to, or when they got angry) they would change colors or appearances.
and if the dinosouls needed to get the attention of the living, they had options: for example, one of the dinosouls could obtain and affix a unicorn horn suitable for poking people, and another could steal a horse tail which it could then control sort of like a cow tail, and they could swat or tickle people with it.
and now you know.
