I was eating some dragon fruit after dinner when Caitlin presented me with her question of the day: "How do you make a dragon fruit?" I told her that you do not make a fruit, it grows on a tree. And Caitlin, being Caitlin, could not accept a correction. She had to have the last word and so proceeded with her own explanation in a rather matter-of-fact way:
"When the dragon is dead, you chop it up and let it rot. Then you put some seeds in and you get dragon fruit!"
