Daddy, I’m gonna write a book tomorrow. It’s called ‘The Yellow Grass and The Pink Trees and The Vampire’… and it’s not going to be a picture book… And Daddy, my book is going to have ten pages… I mean eleven pages.
Daddy:Turn off the water when you're brushing your teeth.
Phia:Why? It doesn't matter.
Daddy:Yes, water is a precious resource. *gets sanctimonious* Wasting water is a sin and "God" would be upset if there was a god.
Phia:God IS real, Daddy!
Daddy:Okay, well, that's just your opinion.
Phia:Well, I know because actually God can be kind of a joker. I had so many bruises on my shin and I said to God, "All I need is one more bruise" and then I got one one more bruise! And I was like, "Really, God! I didn't mean literally!" So, that's my proof.
We were discussing the scientific method a bit since Phia is going to play the role of scientist in her school presentation about gravity:
Phia: I have another hypopithis! Daddy: Oh yeah, what? Phia: I think lions don’t get thorns in their paws, even when they run really fast, because they have pads on there feet. Do you wanna know how I’m gonna test it? Daddy: How? Phia: I’m gonna ride on a lion when I’m a teenager.
