I always thought that some people were intrinsically good… that they were good because they wanted to be good. Yet another myth was shattered this afternoon.
Mister Man: Mommy, did you know that Santa and God talk to each other?
Me: Really? No, I didn’t know that. Why do you think that is?
Mister Man: Because they’re both good guys.
Me: Oh. I suppose that makes sense.
Little Miss: And they don’t go to jail.
Mister Man: Nope, they never go to jail because… because… because they live in the sky.
Me: And living in the sky means they don’t go to jail?
Mister Man: Yeah. Policemen can’t fly, don’tcha know. And their police cars can’t fly, so they can’t arrest God or Santa so they never go to jail.
Huh. I always thought it was because neither God nor Santa did anything that would require being arrested. Little did I know!
