She knew she was supposed to be interested, grounded in all sorts of history, but really Greek gods was just too far from her world of iphones and intragrams. Her mind drifted as the professor droned on about Zeus and Hera and some hooking-up with non-Gods by Zeus.
Boring. What they needed were facebook pages, tmblr and a blog. Zeus’ would be pretty spicy and Hera’s pretty spiteful. The Greek author and 19th century translator obviously needed twitter to write about the pair. Honestly, these dusty old school myths – not even true history to memorize! – need to be, have to be rewritten to fit into the 21st century!
Why didn’t Hera just leave Zeus. Plenty of grounds for divorce, and she could get herself a pretty big alimony settlement. It wasn’t like she didn’t have the dirt on Zeus, just not the photographs; no instagram. Her minions had followed him, and made notes for her.
With a big divorce settlement, Hera could live in a luxurious place over looking the Aegean Sea and invite her own men friends over. . .
“How did Zeus seduce these women? Do I have to ask you again once you wake up?”
