What have the Romans ever done for us?

Went to the school Christmas play tonight.
Son was a Roman soldier.
Hey, at least it was vaguely relevant, not like he was a lobster or anything.
And he and the rest of the centurions did look cute.

Oh my gosh, they're all so cute. But why were the Romans barefoot?

I've never actually seen a Christmas play done with Romans before.

Jen said...

Jen, all the kids were barefoot.

He looks fabulous! K doesn't do a nativity anymore, but I have her singing in the school choir and playing her tenor next week :)

Well, there's the aqueducts. And the sanitation!

Oh yes... sanitation, Reg, you remember what the city used to be like.

All right, I'll grant you that the aqueduct and the sanitation are two things that the Romans have done...

And the roads...

Well yes obviously the roads... the roads go without saying. But apart from the aqueduct, the sanitation and the roads...

Those are absolutely gorgeous centurions! Perhaps they were rounding people up for the census.

Yay, Alison got the Monty Python reference! We have a Roman road near us and EVERY time we drive up it, we say that. Very sad.

I think they were in town for the census. I was a little worried that they were rounding up firstborns and I wasn't sure I wanted my boy complicit in that, but since that was Herod, it was probably his troops doing that rather than the Romans. I hope.
