One of these is not like the others

We found it strange that Lucas, upon seeing the cover of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, kept pointing to the undead portrait of Eliza and saying "Mapache!" At first I thought he thought we looked alike. I was not too flattered. After a few days, however, Matt noticed that Lucas was also pointing to the bottle of Black Lemonade and saying Mapache. Then we realized (as maybe you have already?) that to him the dark around the eyes of the raccoon cookie jar look like empty eye sockets, so he thinks that skulls are raccoons, which of course means that Ms. Pride and Prejudice herself, with her exposed jaw, is also a raccoon. All of this makes me wonder: does he think that Matt is calling me a zombie as a term of endearment?

or maybe that picture of you that matt painted (like the one hanging on the wall above Lucas) except you are skeletons.
