Kind of like Elves

This moment in history has always made me laugh.

Class is meeting upstairs and we are sitting in a pentagon (not a circle, a pentagon) and we are discussing the Iliad. The immortality of the Grecian gods comes up. It is noted the mortals cannot kill the immortals. To this I add that I noticed that even though the mortals could not kill the immortals, the immortals could kill the other immortals. This was evidenced when Zeus told Hera she would have perished when he threw her off of Mt. Olympus if so-and-so hadn't've caught her. So even though they are immortal, they aren't really. They're kind of like elves.

To that everyone laughed, and to this day, it still makes me laugh.
