  • So, how exactly does Cousin Topsy's "turning turtle" work? She said it's been happening to her ever since she was born, implying that any building she's currently in at the moment flips upside down on second Wednesdays, not just her shop. What would happen if she was outside when this happened? And what if she simply left that building and entered a new one? Would that building suddenly flip as well the minute she entered?
