Whichever of you does this will be the ruler of the universe! Also, I will make you those cookies you used to like, with the sprinkles.

What's for dinner, Dad?" Pelops asked. Tantalus had never liked his son. I don't know why. Maybe Tantalus knew the kid would take over his kingdom someday.

I don’t want any of you to drink alcohol until you’re at least thirty-five years old. Even then, you should get a doctor’s note and your parents’ permission, drink responsibly (like one swig a month), and never operate heavy machinery while under the influence!
