You’re right, that does rhyme.

At dinner this evening Alexander asked me what animals that were up all night are called. Never one to pass up a teachable moment – or be a total PITA, depending on your point of view – we had this exchange:

Me: What do you call an animal that is awake during the day?

Sophia: Day-walker!

Me: Heh, no. You call them, diurnal. And what rhymes with “diurnal”?

Alexander: Urinal!
