Girl Terror is obsessive. She gets a thought, or a concept, and she cannot let go. It consumes her for days, until something else comes along to focus on. Dinosaurs lasted for months. Her cousin Ayla, whom she met once a year and a half ago, was a big focus right up until recently. The proposed time-line for her first tooth to fall out can take over her mind for days. Right now, it's all about DEATH. She wants to know "When do people die?" "When will I die?" "Why does stuff die?" "If the flowers die, how come we get more in the summer?" Earlier this week she asked "What is dead like?" And yesterday morning, "When will the polar bears be extinct? Will it be soon? Are they dying now?"
I don't know where the thoughts of death come from. The one-track, totally obsessive mind? That's all from her father.
