you’re a bloxworth snout!
— i am no such thing! i’m a red-green carpet! you are a bloxworth snout!
no i’m not! i’m a silver Y!
well then you’re an obligate!
— yes well i may be restricted to a particular function or mode of life, but i can fly 2,500 km and faster than a bird.
well i prefer to do things optionally in response to circumstances rather than by nature.
— you mean you are facultative?
— fair enough. each to their own!
