The other day I was window shopping in Glen Ellyn with Emma and Easton. It was after hours, and we had ridden the train there to eat a treat at Two Toots Train Restaurant. Emma (almost 6) peered through the window into a darkened store and announced, "I think this is a Christian store!"
"Really?" I asked her, surprised. "What makes you think that?"
"Because I saw a sign that said 'Jesus'."
My curiosity was piqued, and we both shaded our eyes and looked inside.
They were having a 50% off sale on Jeans.
"Emma, it says 'Jeans' not 'Jesus.'"
"Oh, right. Well ... they're similar! Jesus could wear blue jeans!"
