Story 4




My son and I were in the car the other day. A news story came on about a 1000 year old Viking skeleton that had been discovered in a warrior’s grave. Apparently, what made it newsworthy was that the skeleton turned out to be female.


My Son: “Daddy…why is this skeleton so special?”

Me:  “Because it is a girl skeleton and it was found in a warrior’s grave.”

My Son: “So?”

Me:  “The history people thought that only boys could be warriors.”

My Son: “How do they know the skeleton was a girl?”

Me:  “Because the jaw bone was still moving……… Heeyyyooooo!

My Son: “Is that supposed to be funny?”

Me:  “You betcha!”

My Son: “Can I tell Mommy?”

Me:  “…….no.”
