Monsters Among Us
We were driving past a field where some Scottish Highland cattle can be seen. There is an especially cute black calf much like this picture. I pointed them out to my children and Edmund (who is three)replied very solemnly,
"We have to shot that one."
I asked why and he replied.
"Him is a monster and him will eat us."
Then I realized he was probably thinking about this:
The Minotaur which we had just read in "The Children's Book of Heroes" edited by William J. Bennett.
