They’re Babying History

| Learning | February 25, 2015

(I’m in middle school. Our world history teacher is a somewhat eccentric lady who talks about historical events as if she were actually there and famous people of history as if they were her best friends. After a test on ancient Rome, we get this lecture:)

Teacher: “On your tests, some of you referred to Julius Caesar as ‘Julie-Baby.’ Let me tell you – I’m the only one allowed to call him ‘Julie-Baby!’ To the rest of you he’s Julius Caesar! Got it?”

(To this day I still think of Julius Caesar as ‘Julie-Baby.’)
