The Egypt Puzzle

Tonight's dinner conversation with the kids was full of puns.

What has legs and cannot walk? a table.

What can run but has no legs? a river.

What has teeth but has no mouth? a comb.

Amidst the nonsense I started to only half-listen. Therefore, I missed the context of Fritz's next statement, "I don't trust anyone."

Alex sensibly pointed out, "You should trust Jesus."

Emily added, "I trust Jesus and the angels." Because of our predominantly Catholic community, my troubled mind conceptualized her praying to Angel Gabby.

But my doctrinal phobia was short lived, Jane, a week shy of five, piped in, "I trust Jesus and the angels and Egypt." That was one surprising addition! I giggled.
