1) Max goes to church each Sunday with Clarissa’s mom.
2) We watched the new Transformers last week because Max loves Transformers and it was raining outside. At the end, Optimus Prime blasted off into space, leaving Earth, because MISSION ACCOMPLISHED – HIS WORK HERE WAS DONE.
Me: How was church today?
Max: Good. Jesus wasn’t home, though.
Max: We always go to Jesus’ house, but he’s never home.
Me: That’s because Jesus is everywhere. You just can’t always see him. He was probably there.
Max: He lives in the sky?
Max: Even in outer space?
Me: Yeah. He’s there, too.
Max: He lives with Optimus Prime?
I wanted to say: “You’re goddamn right he does.” But we just changed the subject. I had no idea the conversation would arc to Optimus.
