Conversations with Boobies, Part II

For those of you who missed the original Conversations with Boobies, click here.

Here are a couple of new Boobie conversations:

K: I believe in God.

me: Um. OK. Lots of people do.

K: What does God do for people who believe in him?

me: Er. . . nothing, really.

K: Why doesn't he do anything for them?

me: Well, maybe He wants people to help themselves.

K: What does he to do to people who don't believe in him?

me: I think He makes their children ask about Him all the time.

Pause.

K: That's not bad.

She has a point. It definitely beats a plague of locusts.

-------------------------------------------------------------

L: Mommy, what are you doing?

me (busily blogging): I'm working, darling.

L: That's not work!!!

--------------------------------------------------------

K: Mommy, how does a baby get into a mommy's tummy?

me (awkwardly): Well, darling, when the mommy and papa love each other the papa gives the mommy some genetic material so she can grow the baby in her tummy.

Blank stare. I suck. I try again.

me: Um, the man gives the woman a piece of himself.

K (always quick to spot the weak point in an argument): Then how does a man cow put a baby cow in a girl cow's tummy? He doesn't have any hands so he can't give her a piece of himself.

me: Great point, darling. Um. . . why don't we circle back on this one in about (glancing at my watch) 5 years?
