See bad things happen to me on field trips. Like at my fifth-grade school, when we went to the Saratoga battlefield, I had this accident with a Revolutionary War cannon. I wasn’t aiming for the school bus, but of course I got expelled anyway. And before that, at my fourth-grade school, when we took a behind-the-scenes tour of the Marine World shark pool, I sort of hit the wrong level on the catwalk and our class took an unplanned swim.

Percy Jackson: What if it lines up like it did in the Trojan War … Athena versus Poseidon?
Annabeth Chase: I don’t know. But I just know that I’ll be fighting next to you.
Percy Jackson: Why?
Annabeth Chase: Because you’re my friend, Seaweed Brain. Any more stupid questions?
