Mary Had a Little Egg

Overheard conversation between Griffin (almost 6) and Lachlan (4):

Griffin: Birds can die.

Lachlan: No they can't, because birds have spirits.

Griffin: Well their spirits can't die, but the birds can. And ghosts are spirits. And gods are spirits, too, but they don't look like ghosts.

Lachlan: Are ghosts good guys or bad guys?

Griffin: If a good guy dies, it's a good guy ghost. But if you see a bad guy ghost, it was a bad guy who died.

Lachlan: Mary had a little egg, little egg, little egg... [and then he laughed]

And then, a little while later:

Lachlan: I'm Captain Jack. With a purse.

Griffin: You can't be Captain Jack unless you drink rum. Glug Glug Glug. I'm drunk!

So, these are our kids, are they?

I told Griffin at lunch that you miss him, and he said that he misses you too and wishes you could come to Michigan. He also wanted to know if our phone could call you, so you might be getting a call from him today.
