Mom: “What is an antagonist?”

Noah:  “Someone who antagonizes, they cause problems in the story.”

Mom:  “Good.  What is a protagonist?”

Noah(laughing): “Someone who is a pro at antagonizing.”

Then we were discussing archetype and the book David Copperfield.  I asked him to explain the archetype of a orpahn.

His response?

“They don’t have a family.”  Spoken real slow and drawn out, like it was in fact the most ridiculous question ever uttered.
