Mornings in my house…
We’re getting ready for the day, one of the kids has put on a new tv show, Olivia, about a pig who goes to school. Fits the usual pattern, rambunctious little girl who always wants things to go her way, gets bent out of shape when they don’t, learns a lesson and everything works out in the end.
Scene: A classroom.
Teacher: I am happy to announce the name of our next school play! It will be …
Me: (throwing up my arms and taking a wild guess) Hamlet!
Teacher: …The Faerie Queene!
Me: Spencer? Really?
Of course they didn’t mean the classic, they meant some generic “play with fairies in it”. I just thought it was funny that I’m joking about them tackling Shakespeare and for at least half a second it sounds like they’re tackling one of sources.
Had I guessed Dream instead of Hamlet that would even funnier ;).
