People get very confused talking to me about my belief in a higher power. I tell them I'm agnostic tending toward theism, and maybe deism, but I definitely believe that there's a collective energy that ties us together...which is usually met with a) a blank stare or b) some comment or another about "The Force."
So the following conversation wasn't surprising, but it was sure funny, to me anyway.
Dev - Elyas we get to hunt for Easter Eggs tomorrow!
Mom - Yeah, the Easter Bunny is probably on his way right now!
Dev - I hope he doesn't get caught in a trap or something.
Mom - I think he's got some kind of magic or something that he can protect himself from stuff like that.
Dev - (Thoughtful) Like some kind of shield...yeah. Maybe he just jumps out of a hat?
Mom - (Trying not to laugh) Yeah...maybe...
Dev - Maybe he's not even real. What if he's not real, Mommy?
Mom - I don't know. What do you think of that?
Dev - I think maybe it's just Santa.
Mom - Yeah, probably.
