So, drum roll please.

Now for the story:
"Mama," my ten-year-old son said. "Did you know Krakens are real?"
I looked at that kid and shook my head. "Krakens are not real. Those are creatures from mythology."
"They're real," he insisted. "I read about them in a book. They live in the deepest part of the ocean. Let me show you." He grabbed a book about monsters and showed me a picture.
He ignored my comment. "And do you know what else?"
"What else, Bubba?"
"Megalodons are real!"
"They used to be, but now they're extinct," I said.
"No, they're not. It said on the Discovery Channel that a couple were recently spotted."
Of course I didn't believe him, so he made me watch a video.
Well. Those were certainly some big sharks!
(For those worried about Krakens and Megalodons in our oceans, I did a little more research. It turns out there was a disclaimer on the Discovery Channel special that said the footage was fictitious. There are no Megalodons in our ocean. The jury is still out regarding the Krakens.)
