*ponders calling bilby a geonyctitropic jerk, throwing a drink at him, and storming off, but instead decides to just plant a kiss on one of his ridiculously big ears and move on*

This much is clear: your eyes were drawn down to a distinct, firm bulge in my plants.
I was going to say something snarky about "pocket torches," but I'm not sure "flashlight" makes more sense.
I also suspect the plants of not sleeping. They're reading under the blankets with a pocket torch, I just know it.
So is the movement like a hypnic jerk? (And how does yarb know what plants are thinking?)

Good thing we're geonyctitropic! Tee-hee.
Hee hee. The humans think we're sleeping, but really we're mocking them telepathically.
What's with the scare-quotes around "sleep"? Are you suggesting that "certain plants" are faking it? Like naughty children?

Pertaining to the "sleep" movements that occur in certain plants during darkness, in the presence of gravity.
