No, Corn Does NOT Go Up The Nose...

So my mom called me a couple days ago while I was at work, and told me my daughter had a story to tell me.

"Hello mama."

"Hi Beena. What's up?"

"Well, today during rest period, Drew and I found a piece of Indian corn and we were playing with it and I stuck it up my nose-"

I stopped with my water bottle half way to my mouth in shock.

"And I told my teacher and she made me go to the office RIGHT AWAY and Betty made me blow my nose in a kleenex and it came right out, so I didn't even have to go to the hospital."

I was laughing hysterically by now, and could hear my daughter yelling to my mom in the background, "Why is mom laughing??". She sounded genuinely upset at my reaction.

"We won't do that again," My mom assured me. Right. She is five, shouldn't she have hit this sticking of things into the holes in my face stage at like, two or three?

On my posts today, we are discussing God. Since I have a cold right now, I am in no state of mind to take on the Almighty rationally, so I posted a response to the bible instead:

Lisa Simpson proved it on the Simpsons one time...

Seriously though- the only problem I have with religion is the bible. First of all, there isn't ONE religion, or ONE bible. And the bible was written by MAN. Now we all know that MAN isn't perfect, nor can he be trusted 100%. WHY? Simply because he isn't God. God is the only perfect "being", if you are religious. So how can we believe the bible 100%? I am not saying that SOME things in the bible aren't true, but man in general has a tendency to exaggerate, especially in the face of something as awesome as "God". So as far as the bible is concerned, it's not something I put a lot of faith into. That's just my opinion.

And that's about all the thinking I can handle for one day with my head so congested.

It's almost Friday though, people. Woohoo.
