“Wrong.”

Helen wandered along to the next exhibit, and laughed out loud.

“Wrong.”

On, into the mammals section.

“Almost right,” she conceded. Of course, the details were wrong, but they weren’t far off the truth. And, she had to admit, bones only told half the story. She almost pitied them, formulating their theories and reconstructions based on nothing more than a few scraps of bone.

She finally paused at a display about early hominids. Now that she didn’t know for certain.

Hours of entertainment and a new destination. Oh yes, a trip to the Natural History Museum was always worthwhile.

I can definitely imagine Helen doing this :-D Probably justifiably.

I can just imagine her laughing at all the theories when she she knows how the animals *really* behaved.

Hahaha, that is awesome! Very, very Helen - I love it!

thanks, it does seem like the kind of thing she would do, and probably feel very smug while she did it!

So Helen! And don't go near the early hominids!!!!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 22nd, 2011 08:30 pm (UTC) (Link)
Helen would *so* do something like that. I'm sure the hominids are safe... for now.

So Helen (although I feel the need to meep for the early hominids)

Thanks. Poor hominids, maybe she just wants to observe right now?

Helen would definitely do this (though I'd like to see her explain how she knew if anyone overheard her)!

hee, yes. I did have a bit where a museum staff member was giving her odd looks, but it got lost in the edit, unfortunately.

Oh yes, this is totally believable!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 23rd, 2011 04:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
She just wouldn't be able to resist, would she?

*much sporfling* - I can picture Helen doing this while she waits for her latest order of push-up bras to be assembled. Love how she uses the exhibits as a travel brochure

Not a Helen fan at all but I can so picture her doing this.

thanks, it does semm like something she would do.
lsellersfic From: lsellersfic Date: October 26th, 2011 06:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
She does so like to know things other people don't, doesn't she. I can see her loving the Museum being wrong.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 26th, 2011 09:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes, Helen would definitely enjoy that.
