The Little Spartan

Elf is driving me nuts with this.  He is going to be a Spartan.  He is tough.  He would like to sleep on the floor like the Spartans do.  That will toughen him up.  Even though there are spiders in his room that like to hide when the shoe comes out.  Can he wear nothing but a little loincloth like the Spartan boys?  That would help him to learn endurance.

But Elf, how about those daily beatings the Spartan kids got?  You don't really want to be a Spartan.  "Wellll, it would teach me obedience," he reasoned.  Umm... sorry, Elf.  Mom is very mean and will not allow you to get a good idea of what life in Sparta was REALLY like.  You will have to use your imagination.

Though... I have an idea.  I will nibble on your ear and make vvvv-sounds and you show me how TOUGH you are by not giggling.  And Spartans are always so obedient.  Can I have another hug?  Mmm.  Ok.  You are a Spartan (sort of).  Though I am sparing my blog readers the graphic upchuck pic I have of him tasting Spartan "porridge."  You are welcome.

  3. Speaking of upchucking... the actors in 300 often threw up from the intense workouts they had to do to get in shape for the film. So, even modern "Spartans" have it pretty rough.
