Stylites

Every day I do several quizzes. Today one of the words was Stylite - I got it wrong, and said so to Tony who told me that they were saints who stood on top of pillars. His Ma came back with 'who stands on top of pillars?' Tony 'Stylites'. Ma 'what's a Stylite?' Tony 'saints who stands on top of pillars'. Ma 'who stands on top of pillars?' Tony 'Stylites'. And round we went - she did keep saying we were going round in circles, but then kept on asking.

I was cracked up and told her I was enjoying it anyway.
