Ruby: “Sterling, you’re weird.”
My ears perked up. I’m pretty sure she’s never heard anyone called weird before. I’m also nearly certain she has NO CLUE what it means.
“The only person weirder than you is Satan,” she continued. Now I’m quite certain she has no idea what she’s saying.
“No, you’re even weirder than Satan. Satan is just evil. He’s not weird.” Okay, now I’m wondering who on earth taught her what “evil” means, since she seems to have a clear perspective of the word.
I stepped in. “Ruby, what does weird mean?”
“It means you’re really funny.”
Alrighty then. Now that we have that one cleared up, she’s making slightly more sense. Slightly. Earlier in the morning she’d asked me if Satan eats fire for his food. I think it’s time to sit the kids down, figure out what they think, what they know, and set a few things straight. Wow.
