A Balancing Act with a Twist
Last night Chuck and I were sitting in our formal living room chatting while the kids watched The Three Stooges in the den. Yes, we weren't dying to see the movie the way they were. George kept coming in and out to talk to us, climb on us, show us stuff, etc. At one point he climbed up on the arm of the sofa I was sitting on to show me how he could balance. He put his two feet together and lifted himself into a standing postion holding his arms out to the side to balance himself. I was right next to him to catch him if he lost his balance, but his arms seemed to keep him upright as exclaimed, "Look at me! I'm balancing!" Chuck and I nodded as we watched him and said, "Good job, George! That's really impressive!" Then, he slumped his head to the side, still holding out his arms and said, "And this is how Jesus died." I almost spit out my drink. Seriously, what makes him think these things? I mean, yes, he had it completely right, but really??? I wish I could have captured this on my camera, but there wasn't time.
