Herc-o-meter: Big Sister Blues

Lots of familial exposition today!

Today’s trivia question: Who was Hercules named after and why?

Yesterday’s answer: Originally Hercules was slated to do 10 labors, but two didn’t count. The first was slaying the hydra, and it didn’t count because he had helped. The second one that didn’t count we’ll talk more about later, but the reason it didn’t count was because Hercules was paid for it.

And today’s Hercules words of wisdom from Nonna Sofia: The hero’s way wasn’t only the way of strength. It was the way of wits as well.

Tony takes his grandmother’s advice to heart:

“Later, Nonna,” said Tony. “Homework. If I study enough, someday I’ll figure out that I have to burn the hydra heads.”
