Elijah's WHAT IFs- #1

I have mentioned in passing before that one of Elijah's favorite hobbies is presenting me with completely impossible "What if" questions that I MUST attempt to answer. He will not be pacified with a casual, "I don't know buddy" while I'm really thinking about something else. I've decided that I'm going to try to start recording these "what ifs" for posterity.

Riding in the van, completely out of the blue a few days ago,
Elijah: "Mommy? Mommy? Mommy? Mommy?"
Me: "Yes?"
Elijah: "What if Micah's stomach blew up and he floated up into outer space and landed on a meteor?"

Anyone? Anyone have an answer for that one?

That's an awesome question! Actually you would have a ton 'o problems if your tummy exploded. I dont' think you'd be worried about floating anywhere!
He's so cute!

What an imagination!
The answer??
I guess we'd miss him but we could think of him everytime we look up in the sky.

Simile Metaphor Collection

Elijah after running: My heart is beating like a coconut rolling down a hill.
Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
