Derk makes me uneasy

I was - very uneasy!  (Possibly among others, it's been a while since 
we've discussed this, hasn't it?)   Much of my uneasiness centred 
around the idea of breeding your own children - ugh.  An *essential* 
part of parenting, IMHO, is the concept of taking what you get - and 
then trying to do the best job of parenting that child you can - no 
matter how unlike your idea of the 'ideal child' he or she may be! 
Also there was a bit of unhappiness at Derk's saying that he'd hoped 
for two of the griffins to be a mating pair.  Ugh again.
