Rooby, binge-watching Octonauts while I copyedit nearby: [plies me with constant stream of information about the ocean, including but not limited to the habits of angler fish and Christmas tree worms, the physiology of lemon sharks and anemones, the rarity of golden coral, the risks of rockslides off “sea mounts,” and the difference between various oceanic ecosystems in terms of sunlight levels]

Me: Wow, you’re really learning a lot about the ocean from this show.

Rooby: Yup.

Me: I’m glad. You seem very interested in it.

Rooby: Yes. Too bad for you they don’t say much about books.
