Two mistakes

1. Do not tell your 7-year-old the real ending of Romeo and Juliet. He's mature, but not THAT mature.

2. Do not tell your 7-year-old about Georgi Markov and the ricin-umbrella. Again – mature, but not THAT mature. Also, now he may never eat rice again, because of a fundamental misunderstanding.

Yay, parenting!

  1. Does this mean we can start reading him the real ending to The Three Little Pigs?
    Wait, he’s probably read it himself by now.

  2. Too late, Julie. I read him the real ending to Three Little Pigs years ago. I wasn’t quite expecting the stunned, horrified look on his face when he exclaimed “that’s not how daddy reads it”. Bad uncle, bad uncle.
