Me: Hey Baz, Dad says he talked to you about going to Mongolian Grill for your birthday dinner, is that what you'd like to do?

B: Well, I'd kind of like to get sushi. I don't know what there is at Mongolian Grill, I've never been.

Me: Remember we went to one in Ann Arbor with Jenna? Where you guys made tortilla snowflakes?

B: oh yeah!

Me: But I think this one is a bit different, Dad said something about them having a buffet, too, with shellfish.

B: OH! Well, if they have shellfish, then great, but if not, I want to go for sushi.

Me: Ok, let's check (Nick calls) Ok, they have crab and shrimp and mussels.

B: Sounds great, I love those! But of course technically mussels aren't shellfish, because they're not arthropods, technically only arthropods are shellfish. You can tell an arthropod because it has a segmented body and an exoskeleton and legs that are jointed. Some examples of arthropods are lobsters...... crabs......scorpions.......scorpions.....scorpions and other arachnids.......trilobites.......... crayfish......... millipedes (me: ugh! millipedes). Technically, mussels are mollusks...... not shellfish at all.

But I like mussels too, so it doesn't matter that they're not arthropods.

Me: ...great! Mongolian Grill it is.
