This thing is Greg all over. He read a Greek mythology book and the assignment was to make a board game, so here’s our beat-up Fireball Island from the garage with “Olympus! The Game!” written on one side in white out. He’s hot-glued some of his action figures at the corners. Superman (minus the cape) is Zeus, I think. I can’t really figure out the rest so I ask.
“Dad,” he says and rolls his eyes. “That’s Batman, Wolverine, and Spider-Man.”
“But which Greek gods are they?”
“They’re just Batman, Wolverine, and Spider-Man.”
“That doesn’t make any sense.”
He points at a sticky note that reads, “This is very creative, Greg!” A-minus, smiley face. Greg beams and presses his tongue through the gap where a baby tooth used to be.
