On the way to ice skating tonight I told the kids a Cliffs Notes version of Macbeth. Here's my favorite bit:
Me: --and then the three witches told Macbeth that he would be king one day.
Z: Oh no! Never listen to a witch!
A: They have an evil plan!
Z: Didn't Macbeth's dad ever tell him not to listen to a witch?
Me: Uh... I guess not.
