2 He flapped up to his mother. Then he stopped and folded his arms like wings.
3 "What are you being today?" asked Mom, who was wiping the countertop.
4 "I am an eagle," said David.
5 "Wow," said Mom. "I have never had an eagle in the house before. I hope you know how to behave."

8 "It's Grinsallya," said David.
9 "What an impressive name," said Mom. "Does it have a meaning?"
10 David shook his head. "Why would a name have a meaning?"
