Holy Cow

"What did you learn on your second day of school?", I asked.
"Urrmm, The Father", she touches her forehead.
"The Son", she touches her chest.
"The Holy Spirit", she touches her shoulders.
"How Many". She smiles triumphantly.

"Errr, what did you say?", I ask.
"How Many", she replied.
"How many what?", I asked.
"It's what you say after The Holy Spirit. You know, How Many", she said.
"Oh", I say. Amen is not a word used in our house, obviously; never been one for religion me.


  1. Yikes they're recruiting them early...

  2. Indeed - I am of the view that she can taste it and build up her own sceptism as she grows up......if she follows my lead, she'll soon work out that religion = faith - revenue or you don't need to pray to be good - bad people pray a lot I believe....

  3. LOL - quote of the day on ...

    "When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bike. Then I realised that The Lord doesn't work that way, so I stole one and asked him to forgive me." Emo Philips

  4. Perhaps the people you talk about here are deeply religious?
