L: “Hey mom, what’s a paylindroh er…?”
M: A palindrome is a word, or a series of words, you know, a sequence, whose meaning is the same going either direction, forwards or backwards.
L: “Can you give me an example?”
M: Yeah, sure. I used to play around with them all the time. Right now, I’m sorta struggling to come up with anything. Oh wait, POOP. P-O-O-P, same word forwards and backwards.
L: (Pause.) “Or maybe ‘lion oil?’
M: (Spoken in garbled, barely audible flat voice) Yeah, that works. So does poop.
