hmmmm. How to answer?

Sometime a question needs a preface.

So..... one of the ladies on my staff has moved from semi-Urban to mostly rural area...

She has issues with large furry rodents in her stream in her backyard and needs help identifying them.

This morning: Her: "do you know what a beaver looks like?".

Me: Poleaxed look. Not sure how to answer. ("Danger!, Will Robinson,  Danger!!")

She: Realizes what she might have implied. "No, that's not what I meant".

Me: "Well, yes, I've seen a beaver or two in my time".

(Not saying: "some are tasty too"....or "some are hairy and some are bald...". ) But I wanted to SO badly...

Nope I didn't go there, I just found something else to do elsewhere...
