What Does He Really Want To Do?
We discovered a frozen lizard in the freezer today. Incidentally, Joel saw the lizard running into the freezer and closed the door.
Ethaniel was saddened by the frozen, hardened and dead lizard.
Ethaniel: Lord, we pray that you make the lizard become alive again. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
After waiting 4 seconds.
Ethaniel: It's not alive. Its frozen still.
Me: You really want it to become alive?
Ethaniel: Yes. I want it as a pet.
Joel: That will be scary if it actually comes back to live!
Ethaniel continues to poke the lizard with a pencil. And more chatting between Joel and Ethaniel.
Joel: Turn the lizard around so that it will run to you when it becomes alive. Since you prayed for it to resurrect. *cheeky smile*
Horror look on Ethaniel's face.
Ethaniel: If we defroze it, will it become alive again? If we cut it up... maybe we can see if it has eggs inside?
Joel: How if we cut you up and see if you have some eggs inside.
Ethaniel: No. *innocent look* See I don't have eggs *lifting up his t-shirt to prove his point*
Ethaniel looked at me with sad eyes and said...
"So poor thing, ......"
"Can we cut it up and cook it... maybe boil it and make a fire and burn it up. What do you think huh, Koh Koh (Joel)?"
Honestly, I was confused between his compassion and sadistic behaviour towards the lizard.
