Dad: Wow, RubySue just floored me with her knowledge and understanding the other day.
Dad: Well, she said, ‘Grandpa, I know what the Holy Ghost is.’ And I said, ‘What?’ And she said, ‘He doesn’t have a body.’
Me: Oh yeah?
Dad: Then I decided to see if she really understood it, and I asked, ‘So what is he?’ And she said, ‘He’s a spirit, and he is there by us all the time to help us.’ I just can’t believe how well she understands these gospel concepts.
Me: Are you talking about RubySue? The same child who watched an episode of Little House on the Prairie with you, and then spent the rest of the evening hunkered down under the dining room table, yelling at us to take cover to avoid the twister–THE TWISTER!!–that was about to tear through the living room? That RubySue?
Mormona non grata, I’m telling you…..
