Pepper Water

Sitting around the dinner table eating a bedtime snack --- celery (because it's suppose to work like an antacid).

Alyssa: Mommy, I wish we could get paid money to go to church.

Me: Some things are better than money (...thinking about treasures in heaven). Going to church helps us to become more like Jesus --- and becoming like Him will make it so you can receive many of His blessings.

Payton: Jesus has very important work for me to do. Like going on a mission! (He gives a HUGE smile. He's really excited to do this.)

Eli: If you could go anywhere in the world on your mission, where would you want to go?

Payton: Salt Lake City!

Me: That would be a great place to go.

Eli: Do you know why they call it "Salt Lake"?

Alyssa: Because it's a lake and it has salt in it.

Eli: (surprised) That's right!

Alyssa: (blushing because she's so smart)

Payton: (very matter-of-factly) Did you know sharks don't like salt water? They only like pepper water.

Me: ???? (hu?)
