Scott blogs about (Advanced) Dungeons and Dragons and it brings back memories of Sunday School.
It was third grade sunday school, We are talking about why we refer to God as “Our Lord.” “Does anyone know what a ‘lord’ is,” the nun asks?
Nobody else knows. I raise my hand.
“It’s a tenth level fighter!” I answer.
The whole class freezes… and then bursts out into laughter.
The nun continues, “That may be true, but in the middle ages…”
You can bet I had no trouble answering this question in 6th grade social studies segment on feudalism.
Sometimes when we’re most embarrassed is when we learn the most.
(Embarrassed because clearly a fighter becomes a lord at the 9th level, not the 10th. 😉 )
Thank you Dad (and Santa) for giving me the Basic D&D set in the third grade.
