My mom has a theory about the dragon eggs:
I still keep waiting for the dragon eggs to hatch and I don’t know why! There’s something important about them. There’s some significance to why there’s always fire around them. Do you want to know what I think? I don’t think they’re dead. I think they’re like fossils. Petrified into stone. Did you know there are acorns that people think are dead because they’re like stones? Even in the forest, a forest fire will cause stone acorns to burst open under terrible heat. And then the acorns are ALIVE. Hey! Why are you laughing at me? Stop teasing your mother! It’s true.
