Wisdom

July 14, 2008

Just now walking across campus I heard the most amazing conversation snippet. A pair of boys, one 9ish, one 6ish. Following is all of the consersation I managed to catch. It made me really happy.

Younger boy: “are you sure?”

Older boy: “Well obviously wizards and dragons aren’t real, but KNIGHTS are…and that’s the important thing….”

Younger boy: “Yeah, knights are cool.”

    But what good are Knights without dragons or wizards to square off against?
    They’re too young to be damsel-oriented, no?

    Well to fight a wizard you need magic, which isn’t really real. And to not get fried by a dragon you need an asbestos suit, which is real, but causes cancer. But to fight a knight you’d do alright if you had a can opener, which you can get at any corner store or supermarket. So yeah, knights are more real and more cool because they give you hope that you can actually win. I could do with a metal suit. Maybe a heavy metal suit. Yeah, that’d be cool. A heavy metal suit. I wouldn’t wear it swimming.

    My good buddy Don Quixote is a perfectly good knight without need of dragons and wizards and such. They just get in the way of a good tilting anyway.

    The Don and I go way back.
