Literary Burns

I have the greatest news. My kids are insulting one another. That may sound strange to you, but I'm not finished. Why is this cause for celebration? They're insulting one another with literary allusions! For example:

"What's on the test?"

"We just went over that--Rip Van Winkle."


"Why don't you grow a pair--Francis Macomber."


"Hey! 'The Raven,' he heard you. Shut up already!"

And here I thought my kids weren't learning anything. Who knows? Today they're throwing around insults. Tomorrow they could be quoting the text as evidence to support their insults.

"Why do I think you are disgusting like Lennie from Of Mice and Men? Because like Lennie, you'd drink out of a gutter if you was thirsty."

Chapter One--biatch!
