Future Dreams

Eli, Jonah, and Reuben were driving home from church yesterday. Somehow they got on the topic of what "they" were going to be when they grew up. Although it changes day to day, it's rather interesting to hear what Jonah's ever-changing vocation dreams are!

Jonah: Dad, when I grow up, I'm going to be a knight.
Eli: Really?
Jonah: Yep, a knight. And you are going to be a king when you grow up, and Mommy is going to be the queen.
Eli: But what about Reuben? What's he going to be?
Jonah: Reuben? Oh, he's going to be the servant.

And there's some deep brotherly love, right? Hmmmmm, but then Jonah followed that statement up with this question:

Dad, what's a "servant"?

When Eli explained the role of a servant in relation to knights, kings, and queens, Jonah frowned and reassigned Reuben the post of fellow knight. = ) Thank goodness, right?
