"I was watching a show about the Antichrist on the Hitler Channel ..."


THAT'S an on-the-way-to-school conversation starter, doncha think?

But first, don't judge. In my family, we call the History Channel by that name, due to its propensity to show many, many, MANY programs on World War II. We can't help it. It's in our nature to be irreverent.

So back to the Roo-girl's conversation opener.

"I was watching a show about the Antichrist ..."

I looked at her, amused, and she continued:

"The Antichrist is supposed to believe he's God -- or even greater than God. And he is supposed to rule for seven years. For the first 3 1/2 years, people like him, but for the second 3 1/2 years, they hate him."

Really? These are things I never knew -- or thought I needed to know -- but hey, I'm game to learn too. Tell me more, Roo.

"So you know who I think is the Antichrist?"

I looked at my daughter, unable to even fathom what was going to come next. I was right to not fathom.

"Kanye West," she crowed.


"No, really, think about it," she insisted. "He thinks he's God and he should be in the Bible. And people liked him for a few years and now they hate him ..."

I roared with laughter.

She grinned, and her eyes twinkled.

"I'm SO smart!" she said, nodding her head. "Don't underestimate me, my friend!"

Nope ... never.

It must be fun and enlightening to have a daughter who's like you yet still herself. She's a kick!!!!

Oh, Dude - I thought she was gunnin' for Bush... Hers is WAY funnier!!! (and not quite as scary)

Isn't the Antichrist supposed to die and come back to life? Does Kanye have a death threat out on him? I'm sure someone could oblige. That would test that theory rather quickly.

Well, since he was so rude to Taylor Swift, I've withdrawn my sponsorship.

Haha, Roo cracks me up.

I wouldn't have been able to keep a straight face during that conversation. And surprisingly it makes sense in a strange sort of way. (Hugs)Indigo
