An Easy Mistake

'Mummy, is an ego a mammal?'
Stumped for a moment, but undeterred I answered, 'No,no, your ego is a bit like your self esteem',(not quite there but I was warming up!)
'Oh really? But it looks like an ostrich, there's one on the book Daddy reads to Rory sometimes.'
Me, comprehension dawning, 'That's not an ego, that's an emu!'
