Did You Know Robin Hood?

AMILIA (AGE 11): Daddy, I’m bored.

ME: Learn to read good books. You’ll never be bored again.

AMILIA: Like what kind of book?

ME: I don’t know. Treasure Island, Swiss Family Robinson, Chronicles of Narnia, Robin Hood . .  .

AMILIA: Robin Hood? Is that the one with the fox in it?

ME: Yes, But you know, it was a book before Disney turned it into a cartoon.


ME: Blown away that Robin Hood was a book first, huh?

AMILIA: No. I’m blown away because you must be REALLY, REALLY, REALLY OLD to know Robin Hood was a book before it was a cartoon!

It’s not like I knew Robin Hood personally.
