Cute Kid Story - Bible style  
(Our story takes place as we were driving home from church last night.   Ethan, the seven year-old, was chattering non-stop, as he is want to do.  He's telling us about his bible story lesson.  One of Jesus' "pear bulls.")

Me.  Parable?

Ethan.  That's what I said.

Me.  Of course.  My mistake.

Ethan.   (Chatter chatter chatter)... and the taxpayer only prayed for himself.

Nolan.  Tax collector?

Ethan.  Yeah, maybe.

Nolan.  I think I'm right.

Ethan.  We'll google it when we get home.  (SO my child)

Nolan.  (sighs heavily, remains silent) And then what happened?

Ethan.  The pharmacist knew how to pray.  He was humiliated.

Me.  (through fits of laughter)  The Pharisee?  He was Humble?

Ethan.  Pharisee, pharmacist.  Is there a difference?

Nolan.  (looks at me)  A little bit.

****

At the end of it, I think we got him set straight, but I may have liked his version better.  :D

That's so cute.

"We'll google it when we get home" I used to be like that too when I was little. "I know I'm right, but we'll look it up." or if I was really sure that I was right: "Wanna bet?" I usually was wrong and I lost a lot of money to my dad.

*giggles insanely*

I had to read that to my husband, who almost fell out of his chair, laughing, because it's SO familiar! Ethan and my Eldest can never, ever, meet! No one would ever get a word in edge-wise again!

Just adorable! I think he's going to be a whiz at doing those dreaded 'rewrite Shakesphere' passages into modern English *g*

*falls off chair* Your children are so modern. Let's Google the Bible, indeed.

Maybe if our pharmacists were Pharisees, prescription drugs would actually do what they're meant to do...or maybe they would eliminate the need for drugs altogether... I think Ethan's got something there. :-)

He wins at life!
