Overheard

Jonah: Hi, Daddy. [climbs up in Daddy's lap] I want God.

Daddy: You want... God?

J: Yeah.

D: Um... What do you want to learn about God?

J: About the old man.

D: What old man?

J: The old man who took his pants off.

D: Um. Uh, everyone has to take their pants off sometime.

J: Yeah. And my pants got ripped off! In a accident!

D: Were you in a motorcycle accident?

J: No... a schoolbus accident.

  1. The syntax of his brain is...unfathomable.

  2. Sounds to me like Jonah was listening to his daddy's sermons! Maybe something about the old man and the putting off of the filth of the flesh or something along those lines. I was trying to think of another word for pants that he maybe misunderstood... Very funny!

  3. Haha!! Yes! I didn't think about that! Maybe he was regurgitating something that he misunderstood. I couldn't figure out where else he may have heard something about an "old man." Maybe he meant his own Old Man. :-)
