I overheard this conversation on the way to church today.
8 year old girl furiously states: “I wish I was one of the Three Fates right now! I would so snip your life thread!” She then makes a scissor motion with her fingers.
10 year old boy retorts angrily: “Well I wish you were Prometheus and everyday I would watch a giant bird come down and eat your liver!”
I don’t know whether to be upset with them for fighting and arguing or to be proud because they’ve obviously learned their Greek mythology. It’s a complete draw and I am left feeling ambivalent inside.
Oh well. Just another day here at As the Greek Urn Turns.
