We were talking about King Arthur yesterday at lunch, and Mariel mentioned that there was a prince named Arthur who never got to be king of England. We all put our heads together to try and remember who exactly he was, and whether he was done in by an uncle, and what the uncle's name was.
"Well, he was most likely a Henry, a Richard or an Edward," said Mariel, determined to cover all bases. "Why they couldn't choose a bigger variety of names is beyond me."
The girls stared at me when I couldn't stop laughing.
