... You should have seen The Boy's face light up with joy when he found out he is going to be a Torch Acolyte. Then you should have seen his dejected scowl when he found out the "torches" weren't Flame Throwers. His lament ... "But mom! They aren't even torches at all! There are just like regular lanterns on poles. I thought I was gonna get to burn stuff. That was so misleading!"
On the ride home he made me even prouder by declaring that he was "so going to write a blog post about this!"
