If Lemont has any access to the kid, he still may be able get a sample. It would cost some money and it may not be admissable in court but he'd know. Heck, the police can get DNA from a cigarette butt. Lemont chould pay Clyde $20 to boost the kid's pacifier or sippy cup. Distract mom and grab a few hairs out of the diaper bag. If you can get a DNA from a stool sample, grab a diaper from the trash.
Some things are just too important to be left to chance.
I'd like to meet this kid's mommy. She sounds awesome!
What would Lemont think "railroaded" means? The dictionary says:
1. vt force something through quickly without discussion: to push something through a legislature, committee, or other decision-making body quickly so that there is not enough time for objections to be considered (informal)
2. vt force somebody to act hastily: to force a person or group to make a decision or take action quickly, without time for consideration or discussion (informal)
3. vt convict somebody too quickly: to convict somebody on the basis of flimsy or false evidence (informal) So, what would Lemont think that would be different from what the little kid said?
Chaya, Lemont IS thinking of those definitions. He's saying that the kid doesn't know the figurative meaning. The little kid is taking it literally & thinks it means they get to go riding a choo-choo, hence the train engineer outfits.
Oh, now I am totally chuckling. Thanks, Macushla. I have forgotten how to think like a child. Tsk, tsk on me. Yes, both my kids when young took EVERYTHING literally. In fact, once I said, "Please take the dishes off the table" and my child took ONLY the dishes off the table." When I said, "Please pull up a chair for Mommy", he came to me holding the chair in the air and asked what to do with it. So, yes, you are right! I didn't even catch the train hats at first. I didn't know there were engineer hats. But, now that I think about it, I do remember reading children's books to my kids where there were engineer hats shown. Hmmm. Memories, memories.
