Backseat Theology

On the way home from Target, with a birthday gift for a classmate in hand, The Princess got all philosophical on me.

"Daddy, were do Polly Pockets come from?
I don't know, baby girl. China?

Maybe God makes them.
Well, I hadn't thought of that possibility

And Jesus paints them. To make me happy."

So there you have it. The origins of the life of Polly Pocket.

Direct from the backseat to your ears.

Now, wait just a minute here... Something is all wrong.

How can Jesus have time to paint all them Polly Pockets... After all, he has all the My Little Pony's to paint too!

Well, I dunno. Because, to tell the truth, I thought Polly Pockets were tools of the devil, used to drive dads to the brink of insanity...

Which is EXACTLY why we would give one as a gift, right. My daughter has some, so now I am sharing the pain with some other unsuspecting dad.

Poor guy.
