I’m sure she owns all the Discworld books. Say, wasn’t there a humorous argument between the main character and a sphinx in one of the stories? It had something to do with her “What goes on four legs in the morning…” riddle. The guy was complaining that it wasn’t metaphorically consistent, and wanted it adjusted to something like “What (figuratively speaking) walks on four legs for approximately 20 minutes past midnight, two legs for most of the day, barring accidents, and up to three legs( four if they’re using two canes) after at least half-past nine?”
