Astronomy Lesson

The scene: Rommel and I walking back from the grocery store. A rare evening in Los Angeles when you can actually see a few stars.

Me: "Those three stars are so bright. I wonder which constellation they are part of."

Rommel: "That's Orion's belt."

Me: "Wow, I'm impressed. How did you learn that?" I was honestly thinking about some cute story like his father pointing out all the constellations on starry evenings during his childhood.

Rommel: "Clash of the Titans!"

Me: "Seriously?"

Rommel: "Yeah, they said they would reward him with the constellation so know one would forget. And dammit, I will never forget!"

I thought it was funny.
