“Loki, look at that, my wildest dreams wouldn’t make up a ship like that! And I guess children are going to ride in this? My own children will be very amused to see this, in Valhalla!”
The ghost of the Viking Ragnar just shook his head. How could they make such a mockery of the beautifully crafted ships we made? He was very disappointed to think children wouldn’t know the truth from objects like this. All they see are cartoon images wearing big horned furry hats brandishing swords. Ragnar was saddened by this apparent fact and all he could do was observe.
“Don’t worry so much about it. Their televisions and computers have series on Vikings and show real ships and how they were made. They even recovered a full ship in good condition! If they want knowledge about the history, they need to read about it.”
“It’s just such a shame. How can I be happy in Valhalla when these children will not know the real history of their ancestors?”
The two apparitions floated over the bow to take a closer look. “Oh, Loki, this is sad!” Ragnar pointed to a popcorn machine and soda stand in the hull.
