Imagine a scenario in which Yoki hallucinates that he is Maya and that he must rescue Is. from the sub-zero blizzard conditions by melting the entire drift (three feet from the back door of the house) with his pug-sized tongue. I was not present at this scene earlier today, but by all reports neither of these two were long for this outdoor play session. Still, I have to admire Y.’s courage (his thirst!) and add that Is. appears in her winter get-up to be better prepared for the cold weather than I am.
