One might say that Dizzle is inquisitive. She wants to know as much as she possibly can before she commits. She loves to learn. She loves to talk. Some days I love this trait, and some days I want to put in earplugs and walk away.

Dizzle: If we are made up of bone, how do we bend?

Dizzle: So, that's why they can bend here and here and here ...
Dizzle: Well, that's good, because if they didn't bend, we'd have to use magnet gloves to pick up everything.

What kind of professionals are we talking about? The amazing straight arm professionals? Because, I've never met one ...
