The following conversation took place on the way home from church services this past Sunday morning, between Cooper (my 6 year old) and myself.
Cooper: I fell asleep and took a nap through your sermon this morning.
Me: I noticed. I guess I’ll just preach the lesson for you again in a little while.
Cooper (now with a half-grin trying to be ornery): I guess I’ll just have to take another nap.
Me: Another nap? How many naps can you take in one day?
Cooper: How many sermons can you preach in one day?
Me: A lot.
Cooper (trying to keep a straight face): I can take a lot of naps.
Me: Is there anything I can do to make my sermon more fun, so you’ll want to hear it? (I should have known better than to ask that question.)
Cooper: You could do a little disco dance while preaching your sermon.
Wow, wouldn’t that go over well this coming Sunday!
