Lily: [explaining to me why her stuffed monkey should be able to go to bed in her place.]
me: [ignoring her.]
Sam: [lying on the floor by Steve's side of the bed, out of sight.][speaking in a low, booming voice.] "Kerry, Kerry. This is Heavenly Father."
me: "Huh, what?"
Sam: [still talking in the low voice] "This is Heavenly Father talking and I'd like to give you a message."
me: "Okay. What's your message?"
Sam: "behold! the holy ghost will come down! and it will say, 'listen to your daughter!'"
Sam: "Also, Sam would like a TV in his own room."
me: "Also fascinating."
Sam: "Yes. He tells me it would make it much easier to watch his own shows that way."
