Who invented people?
Almost verbatim car conversation, from yesterday:
Son: “Mom, did you know that before people were invented, robots lived all over the earth.”
Me: (Pause) “Really?”
Son: “Yeah, robots.”
Me: (Pause) “Well, who invented people, anyway?”
Son: (Pause) “Oh, the robots invented them.”
Me: “What about the robots, who invented them?”
Son: “God. Actually God and the robots invented the people together.”
Me: “Oh, really? I always thought God invented people.”
Son: “Yeah, with the robots.”
Son: “The first robots that lived were really smart.”
I think that this story resulted from two other narratives combining in a bizarre way. First, we were doing a lot of driving, and older son was watching the Ice Age movie over and over, including a preview for the movie “Robots.” Second, we went to a museum that had stuff from one and two hundred years ago, pioneer days, and we spent some time talking about how things were here way back then.
