[There is a small spoiler in this post]

For his 13th birthday, I went with my son to see the new "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie. At one point one of the characters is revealed to be the goddess Calypso bound in a human body. When the right spell is said to release the goddess, the character suddenly grows to be as tall as the ship's mast, harangues the crew for being rotten mortals -- then bursts into a hundred thousand crabs, who scuttle across the deck (and over all the humans) and jump into the sea.

Boybot turned to me and said "Worst piñata ever."

When Mrs. G imagines the coming years with you and the "Boybot" tossing lines like that around, she must shiver.
