Let’s play Bible stories. I’ll be David and you be Goliath, and I’ll cut off your head.
No—I’ll be David, and you be Goliath.
OK, if you don’t want to be Goliath, I’ll be Moses and you be Pharaoh, and I’ll drown you in the Red Sea.
No—I’ll be Moses and you be Pharaoh.
OK. If you don’t want to be Goliath or Pharaoh, I’ll be Daniel and you be the lions with their mouths shut.
Mama, Matt told me to shut my mouth!
Why don’t we three be Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego. King Nebuchadnezzar has just thrown us into a burning fiery furnace for refusing to worship a golden image.
I’m not a bit hot. Are you guys?
No, I’m just nice and warm.
OK, Mandy, now you be Nebuchadnezzar
