A Conversation with Rob


ROB: "Hey mom, how fast does Jesus run?"
ME: "Jesus, as in Jesus?"
(I point to a picture of Jesus in our house)
ROB: "Yeah, how fast does he run?"
ME: "Umm... I don't know, buddy."
ROB: "Well, he's the fastest on the whole planet."
(my confused pause)
ME:
"Where did you hear that?"
ROB: "On Diego."
(Then the light in my brain goes off)
ME: "Cheetahs, buddy. Cheetahs. Not Jesus."
ROB: "Oh..."

One disappointed son.

Man, way to disappoint the little guy. I bet Jesus can run faster than a cheetah though.

That cracks me up, but half of what is so funny is how quickly you were able to figure out where his train of thought was coming from! Way to go Mom!
