Sam: "Did you know that you're my second mommy?"
Sam: "I used to have a different mommy, but now I have you."
me: "what happened to your first mommy?!"
Sam: "well, she pretended to die. and they pretended to bury her. but then--on Friday!--her ghost came out and went to the golden parking lot."
me: "the golden parking lot?"
Sam: "Yeah. It's in China. Where they don't speak english. But, see, there's a really, really long staircase to heaven and if your ghost comes out of the ground, you get to wait in the golden parking lot."
Sam: "You're nicer than my first mommy, though."
