Argument at Bedtime

T: Thanksgiving is for thanking the Pilgrims and the Indians.

Z: No, it's for thanking God.

T: Pilgrims and Indians.

Z: No, my teacher said we have to thank God.

T: You're wrong.

Z: MS. E SAID IT'S FOR THANKING GOD!!!

Brad: Guys, Guys, what's going on in here?

Z: Tizzy says that Thanksgiving is only for thanking the Pilgrims and the Indians, but my teacher said it's also for thanking God.

Brad: It's a day for being thankful for everything. That's why it's called Thanksgiving. Everything that we are thankful for we give thanks for that day.

T: Ooo-oH! So then I'll just draw some Pilgrims and Indians, some clouds in the sky and a bunch of turkeys!

Z: It's funny that God has a beard.

Tell them not to forget the Tooth Fairy. And Unicorns. And the Baby Jesus.
