Eternal Life, Ahmen

Mum: (reading him the nativity story at bedtime) .....and they called the baby Jesus. 

Stan: Cheeses? That's a silly name for a baby. 

Mum: No, Stan, Jesus, not Cheeses. 

Stan: This story isn't real, is it? 

Mum: Why do you say that? 

Stan: You don't get baby boys. Boys just come out big. You only get baby girls. 

Mum: That's not true, Stan. What about all those photos of you when you were a baby? 

Stan: Boys ARE NOT babies. They just get bigger and bigger and bigger until the life falls out of them and then they die. You're quite big now. Are you going to die soon?
