I'm convinced my kids are studying classical Greek drama on the side.
First Child: We heard about middle school today. The lunch is 2.25 a day, that's twenty-five cents more than at the elementary school, so I'll need 11.25 a week for a lunch ticket. You can have a cell phone...
Second Child (simultaneous with the first): We had closet day today, and made masks in art.....
Mother: [Second Child] please let your brother finish.
First Child: Yeah, [Second Child] let me finish.
(Second Child wails loudly)
Mother: [First Child], if I had wanted a Greek chorus effect, I would have asked for one!
Second Child (still wailing): Yeah, [First Child]!
You can replay the scene several times in a 2 mile car ride, if you or your passengers choose. First Child and Second Child parts may be swapped at will.
Classical studies are a great foundation for an interesting life.
