HE SAID SHE SAID

Uma was, as always, on the road with her young'uns.
They lived in their van, she thought, some days.
Life, as it is now, she rationalized.
Driving on autopilot, she listened in on the conversation in the backseat.
Bindiya now five, Nikhil seven, and Dev nine, were good little children and buckled up always but simply had to talk even though Uma had asked them to let her drive in peace. She also asked the children often to let her R.I.P. (Read In Peace) so they had to pick and choose their battles with Mom over "peace".

Nikhil        :       "Where is God?"

Uma          :       "God is everywhere."

Nikhil        :       "Where is he now?"

Bindiya      :       "God is a she."

Nikhil        :       "He".

Bindiya      :       "She !!"

Nikhil        :       "You think everything is a she."

Bindiya      :       "No I don't."

Nikhil        :       "Is a bus a she?"

Bindiya      :       "No."

Nikhil        :       "Is a lion a she?"

Bindiya      :       "No".

Nikhil        :       "Is the sun a she?"

Bindiya      :       "No".

Nikhil        :       "Is a piano a she?"

Bindiya      :       "I don't know, ha, ha !!"

Nikhil        :       "Is this book a she?"

Bindiya      :       "No".

Nikhil        :       "Am I a she?"

Bindiya      :       "Nooo".

Nikhil        :       "Are you a she?"

Bindiya      :       "Yes."

Nikhil        :       "Is God a she?"

Bindiya      :       "Yes."

Nikhil        :       "See I told you, you think everything is a she."

Bindiya      :       "What???"
