The Giant–Soooo, Macbeth is dumb.
Me–Oh? Um, Macbeth the play or Macbeth the character?
The Giant–(looking at me like I just grew a tentacle out of my neck) The CHARACTER, of course. He’s such a cowardly punk. He never sticks to his decisions and his wife is a NIGHTMARE.
The Ginger–(with a mouth that contains a bite of food that could most easily be described as kitten sized) Yeah, what’s her problem, anyway. What’s with all of the whining? She gets to be queen!
Me–Maybe being a queen isn’t all it’s cracked up to be?
The Ginger–Lets ask Freddie Mercury.
The Giant–I did. He said, “Well it’s been no bed of roses….”
The Ginger–No pleasure cruise……
(Believe it or not, I hadn’t caught on to what they were doing at this point)
The Giant–I consider it a challenge before the whole human race…..
Me–Oh, geez, you guys are the WORST!
The Ginger–And I’ll never lose!!!!
The Giant–And I need just goes ON AND ON AND (The Ginger joins in) AND ON!
Topics covered tonight at the table: The Neverending Story–how does it end and, more importantly, WHY does it end? The Last Unicorn–was that guy turning all the unicorns into Narwhals? Was Romeo really 23 and Juliette 13–gross! How regular kielbasa is much more delicious than turkey kielbasa. Why, whenever I ask, “How are you liking The Scarlet Letter?” The Giant brings up an interesting topic about another great book instead and whether this subject avoidance might have greater GPA implications.
Food consumed (by TWO children): THREE packages of kielbasa, six hoagie rolls, two cans of green beans, two boxes of couscous, and SIX warm chocolate chip m&m cookies.
