Freckles: I understand that Robyn didn't really offer me her eyes the other day. I was just a little confused. People do that to me sometimes.
Deb: Yes, the English language can sometimes be very confusing.
Freckles: So, what about when somebody says, "Lend me an ear?" How can you lend someone your ear? My ears are both attached tightly to my head and even if I loaned one to you, it would never fit. Does that mean I should just loan my ears to other bunnies and you should loan yours to people? And, if so, how long before they have to give them back? Can I charge interest? What if they run off with them? Are there collection agencies for ears?
Deb: Oh, Freckles. "Lend me an ear" means that someone wants you to listen to them. That's all.
Freckles: Well, why don't they just say that then. Brother, what a strange language you speak!
Deb: I know. Just hold onto your ears. You twirl and twist them around so beautifully!
Freckles: Yes, I do, don't I?
