Normally I keep Flint’s lisp away from characters’ names. Out-of-universe, I chose to do this because those would be the least familiar words to the average person reading this, therefore not as easy to decipher. In-universe, it’s because Flint takes extra care to pronounce people’s names as accurately as he can, out of respect for them. I put the lisp on Cass’ name here to emphasize his shock.

This page shares its title with page LXXI, the first time Flint’s squirrel instincts kicked in.
