Mig: [closes book gently] …and so that’s how geysers work. Okay kiddo, lights out.
Gamma: [reopens book and points at picture] What if you were standing there?
Mig: You wouldn’t want to. It’s boiling mudpots. You know, bloopbloopbloop.
Gamma: [Laughs] I like how you say that. It sounds just like boiling mud. Do it again.
Gamma: Hehe. What if you were standing here, then?
Mig: Boiling mineral-laden water would rain down on you and you’d be cooked.
Gamma: Uh-huh. So where does God come from, anyway?
Mig: ["God was always there," goes through his head] Ehm…
Gamma: Grandma says God was already always there, but that doesn’t make any sense to me. God had to come from somewhere.
Mig: Dude, look at the time. I have to go clean the kitchen.
I felt bad about running away from an interesting discussion. But seriously. We would have been talking for hours. I’m still trying to figure out the answer to that question.
