One morning – despite himself – Hercules the Lesser turned to Janice Coraopolis and asked her if she had any family pets.
“We have a chocolate lab named Rambo,” she said
“No, I mean a real pet,” he said. “Not a candy one.”
“You’re so funny, Hercules,” she said.
She took his hand in hers and they walked to General John G. Pershing Elementary School just like that.
