So last night I was admiring some new D&D figures that my partner had bought, in particular a new unicorn for Frala (that’s my D&D alter ego. The unicorn’s name is Fion).
My eldest son noted my attention to it.
Quoth he: do you loooove that unicorn, Me-Me.
Me: Yes, I do.
He: Do you love it so much you’re gonna marry it?
At this, of course, I had to take the opportunity to disabuse Sebastian of the need to get married.
Quoth I: No, I’m not going to marry anyone because I believe that marriage is an outdated and patria….
At this point, he cuts me off…
He: Well, do you love it so much you are going to choose to spend your life with it?
That left me come-backless. At least he’s learnt something from the rhetoric.
