Turtles and Chinese Babies

Yes, I said turtles.

Tonight's dinner conversation from Zoe:  I feel sorry for baby turtles.  They're like Chinese babies.  The mama abandons them and they have to get to the ocean all by themselves and there isn't even anyone to find them and help them like people find Chinese babies and take them to the orphanage.

Whew.  Lots to unpack there.  And this was triggered by a video we saw about baby turtles at the Sea Life Aquarium we visited three weeks ago, which is apparently how long she's been brooding about this. . . .

It may or may not be a good time to discuss the term "turtle" in Chinese slang.
