This morning, I took some time to understand Athos’ current book series obsession, Beast Quest. As far as I can tell, it’s a fantasy with the usual battles between good and evil. And thus ensued this conversation:
Pilgrim Mom: You know, a lot of modern fantasies are inspired by classics like “The Lord of the Rings” and the “Chronicles of Narnia”. [We chat about common themes, and land on betrayal.]
PM: Remember how Edmund betrays his siblings in “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”?
Athos: Yah, all because he likes…what was it…Chicken Supreme?
Athos: Isn’t it Chicken Supreme?
PM: No, it’s Turkish Delight!
Athos: Oh, it’s turkey then!
I couldn’t stop laughing for a long, long while. We were on the way to the optometrist so it’s a mercy that I didn’t crash….
