Snow & Death

Aragorn: “We must fly to mighty Caradhras, where we shall find snow and death in equal abundance.”
Lulu: “All right! Um, what is Caradhras?”
Aragorn: “It is a great and terrible mountain!”
Java Bean: “Hey, a mountain! Lulu, that’s just where the mouse said we should go!”
Aragorn: “Your friend must be very wise. Why do they call him the mouse?”
Lulu: “Because he is literally a mouse.”
Aragorn: “Oh. Perhaps Radagast knows him then.”

Mouse: “So how did it go with the playing in the snow in the back yard?”

Lulu: “I think maybe our elevation is too high. I need to go somewhere lower than sea level.”

Lulu: “Anybody up for a road trip to Death Valley?”
Charlee: “We like to avoid places that have ‘Death’ in the name.”
Java Bean: “I’ll go!”

Low and Snow?

Lulu: “Oh boy! Snow at low elevations!”
Mouse: “I’m pretty sure they aren’t referring to sea level.”
Lulu: “Of course they are. Elevations don’t get much lower than this. I’m going to go outside and play in it!”

Momentarily …

Lulu: “Well this is disappointing.”
Java Bean: “¡Oye, Lulu! Come check out this bug I just peed on!”
