This afternoon Zoe said to me, “Alexis says I have another father. A god who lives in the sky.”
Me: “Oh really?”
Zoe: “Yes she says he’s my Other Father.”
Me: “Some people believe in that.”
Zoe: “I don’t believe in that. I’ve never seen him.”
Me: “You’re very scientific.”
Zoe: “Wait! I saw a god once.”
Zoe: “Yes, I saw gods in Percy Jackson. They were very big and lived in the sky.”
Me: “Well some people believe just in Zeus. They call him different names.”
Zoe: “Oh. Well I don’t believe Zeus is my father.”
Me: “You can believe whatever you want.”
Religious discussion of the day: handled.
* Zeus. As in father of Apollo, god of Mount Olympus, don’t f*ck with me or I’ll shove a lightning bolt up your ass, Zeus.
