I always play “the alphabet game”Try to find words on billboards and street signs starting with each letter of the alphabet in order. First person to see a sign claims it. If the sign has multiple words, the person who claimed it can use as many of the words on the sign to proceed as they can.
These are unfortunately reruns. Such a heart-warming comic, severely underrated and sorely missed.

I quite like what C.S. Lewis has to say about leadership and warfare in The Horse and His Boy:“For this is what it means to be a king: to be first in every desperate attack and last in every desperate retreat, and when there’s hunger in the land (as must be now and then in bad years) to wear finer clothes and laugh louder over a scantier meal than any man in your land.”
This is in contrast to how criticises describes the Calormen (who in the book are a cultural mish-mash resembling India and Arabia, but a criticism which I think applies to America as much as any other country today) “These little barbarian countries that call themselves free (which is as much to say, idle, disordered, and unprofitable) are hateful to the gods and to all persons of discernment”.
