Parker, Erik and I were talking about Jonah at dinner last night. Last week Parker came home from Sunday School and told me that Joseph got swallowed by a whale, but the whale choked and had to spit Joseph out. He obviously had some details confused, so all this week I have been telling him the correct version. I decided to test his memory last night.
"Parker, what happened to Jonah?"
"The whale eat him up"
"Why did the whale eat him?"
"Because God punched him"
"What? God punched him?"
"Yes, Jonah not listen, and God punched him."
For the life of me, I could not figure out what he was saying. Then it dawned on me...God PUNISHED him. Parker certainly misunderstood.
