Six(?) months old and she's already amassed minions. Yes, Magister Hansonius, you are raising her well.

Unfortunately, "Tiny" is a less than imposing name for one's minion. Perhaps "Jaws" or "Killer" or something so steriotypically fearsome would be more appropriate?

Hansonius said...

We decided that minions would be alright at this stage but no cronies, thugs, or yes-men.

Unfortunately, Tiny is the name our min-pin (and Stella's minion) is stuck with. He can be fearsome, especially when he gets his hands (metaphorically speaking) on a small, plush animal and drags it under the bed. Don't try to save the stuffed animal. That's a good way to lose a finger.

For what it's worth, I'm planning on releasing someday an onion-based snack line called Minions©.

I can see myself eating these Minions (c) whilst doing such important things, as, say, reading my teacher's online blogs. You should certainly market these snack-treats. I would buy them.

Hansonius said...

Yes, but can you visualize yourself at a your very own Minion© party with you and one hundred of your closest friends reading Hansoniana off of a Megascreen Projection Unit?

That's the vision that I have: our nation's young people enjoying my wisdom and snack products on the grand scale.

Yes, mcvey (elder)is right. A great father you are magister. She will conquer many lands with a copy of the Illiad in her hand (which guy did that?)

Hansonius said...

Plutarch reports that Alexander used a copy of the Iliad as a pillow. I tried it once in college. When I woke up I had a slight crick in my neck and the desire to conquer Asia.

Regina Lucia said...

Yes, great books could have that effect on many. Especially if it truly was bound and embedded with semiprecious gems and ivory. So how did that reconquest of Asia go anyway?

Hansonius said...

The crick in the neck and the long-standing advice "Never fight a land war in Asia" got the better of me.

Regina Lucia said...

Very good advice indeed
