True story: While reading to my 10 year old son one night, I came across the clause, "...the fissure in the sky..."; knowing that I will quiz him on new vocabulary if he doesn't ask me what the words mean, I paused. He looked at me with his big, blue eyes, expectantly. "So, what is a 'fissure in the sky?'" I queried. "That's easy, mom," he nonchalantly answered. "It's that little boy on the moon with a fishing pole before the movie starts."
awe....thanks for sharing! Brings back memories....my daughter is now 21...

So, this little kid was sittin' on the curb, smokin' a cigarette and drinkin' a beer. He was 11 years old and it was a school day.
A reverend saw him and walked up to him and said," Son, you are playing with the tools of the devil. It's time to be in school and here you sit, ditching classes and doing things that are wrong for a boy of your age."
The boy said,"So what, I can do what I want!"
The pastor then asked, "Well, don't you want to go to heaven?"
The boy responds, "He!! No"
The pastor then replies,"What? You mean you don't want to go to heaven when you die?"
The young boy then says, "Oh, when I die, sure. I thought you were getting up a group to go now!"
