So in the interests of attaining cultural literacy, the boys and I watched Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure tonight. Yes, possibly one of the stupidest movies of the '80s, but still fairly entertaining.
Me (thinking this would be a fine opportunity for the boys to show off some of their homeschooled history whizkidishness): "So if you guys could go back in time and pick anyone you wanted to bring to the present with you, who would it be?"
Rhys: "How far back in time does it have to be?"
Me: "I don't think there's a limit… who were you thinking of?"
Rhys: "Uncle Pete."
(To which he added, about 15 seconds later, "And Dinah*.")
