Role Reversal

Lately, as my husband tucks the mid-kid into bed she has taken to telling him a bedtime story. He delivers sips of water, hair smoothes, tickles, smooches and quilt tucks, and she fills his ear with an enthusiastic rendition of a much-loved bedtime story.

Currently she is recounting the Twelve Labors of Hercules.

Hercules' Third Labor- mucking the cow stalls of King Augeas- is tonight's featured program. (Line forms to the right.)
