    “Let us find the dam snack bar," Zoe said. "We should eat while we can."
    Grover cracked a smile. "The dam snack bar?"
    Zoe blinked. "Yes. What is funny?"
    "Nothing," Grover said, trying to keep a straight face. "I could use some dam french fries."
    Even Thalia smiled at that. "And I need to use the dam restroom."
    ...
    I started cracking up, and Thalia and Grover joined in, while Zoe just looked at me. "I do not understand."
    "I want to use the dam water fountain," Grover said.

    “Grover was sniffing the wind, looking nervous. He fished out his acorns and threw them into the sand, then played his pipes. They rearranged themselves in a pattern that made no sense to me, but Grover looked concerned.

    “In a way, it's nice to know that there are Greek gods out there, because you have somebody to blame when things go wrong. For instance, when you're walking away from a bus that's just been attacked by monster hags and blown up by lightning, and it's raining on top of everything else, most people might think that's just really bad luck; when you're a half-blood, you understand that some devine force is really trying to mess up your day.”

    “Dreams like a podcast,
    Downloading truth in my ears.
    They tell me cool stuff."

    He put his finger to his lips. "I'm incognito. Call me Fred."
    "A god named Fred?”
    Rick Riordan

    Rick Riordan
    “The real story of the Fleece: there were these two children of Zeus, Cadmus and Europa, okay? They were about to get offered up as human sacrifices, when they prayed to Zeus to save them. So Zeus sent this magical flying ram with golden wool, which picked them up in Greece and carried them all the way to Colchis in Asia Minor. Well, actually it carried Cadmus. Europa fell off and died along the way, but that's not important."

    “You are okay?" he asked. "Not eaten by monsters?"
    "Not even a little bit." I showed him that I still had both arms and both legs, and Tyson clapped happily.
    "Yay!" he said. "Now we can eat peanut butter sandwiches and ride fish ponies! We can fight monsters and see Annabeth and make things go BOOM!"
    I hoped he didn't mean all at the same time, but I told him absolutely, we'd have a lot of fun this summer.”

    “He cleared his throat and held up one hand dramatically.
    “Green grass breaks through snow.
    Artemis pleads for my help.
    I am so cool.”

    He grinned at us, waiting for applause.
    "That last line was four syllables.” Artemis said.
    Apollo frowned. “Was it?”
    “Yes. What about I am so bigheaded?”
    “No, no, that’s six syllable, hhhm.” He started muttering to himself.
    Zoe Nightshade turned to us. “Lord Apollo has been going through this haiku phase ever since he visited Japan. Tis not as bad as the time he visited Limerick. If I’d had to hear one more poem that started with, There once was a godess from Sparta-"
    “I’ve got it!” Apollo announced. “I am so awesome. That’s five syllables!” He bowed, looking very pleased with himself.”
