I don't remember how the conversation led up to this, but the reference to owls is from Gavin Edwards' When a Man Loves a Walnut and Even More Misheard Lyrics, which we'd just been flipping through the day before. Someone had misheard the Beach Boys' “Help Me, Rhonda.” The actual line:

Since she put me down, I been all through it in my head.

Someone misheard it as:

Since you put me down, there's been owls puking in my bed.

The quote is on page 90, accompanied by an illustration of a man opening the door to his bedroom to the sight of five owls, puking on his bed.


This was about the interpretation of the quote that begins Katie's science-fantasy story, A Promise Kept.
