you don't say

Today in the car we saw some horses.
"Horses are my favorite animals," Lucy said. "Along with dinosaurs, tigers, lions." She said this casually, as if listing her favorite fruits, and not some fairly large meat-eaters. Incidentally, the only time we have seen horses from not inside the car, she refused to get anywhere near them).
"Really, Lucy?" Dyami said. "'Cause I think if you saw a dinosaur walking down the street, you'd be pretty scared."
"Oh, Daddy," said Lucy. You could almost hear the pity in her voice. "There aren't any dinosaurs anymore. They all died."
