It's been awhile since I had a really good one to share. Today's was a doozie.
At the end of the day, Boy A was by the door tying his new sneaks. Real hot, fast looking shoes. I told him they looked like they ought to have wings on the heels, like that Greek god. "You know who I'm talking about, don't you?" I asked.
"The Red Bull guy?" he replied.
Groan. The curse of popular culture.
So I had to go over to my mythology shelf and check. On the way, I asked Boy B, who was likely to know the answer so I wouldn't have to look. "Is it Hermes with the wings on his shoes?" I asked.
"No, Herpes, isn't it?"
"Uh, no. For sure not Herpes. That's a disease."
