Souls in a Line

...

"Wait!" she says.  My daughter.  My eight-year old daughter.  "This is what I believe."
...

The souls.  They all line up in heaven.  G-d said it.  Before he created us.  "Get in line!"  And so the souls get in one big, long, straight line.  The first two are Adam and Eve.  They are the first in line.  G-d sent them down.  Here.  To Earth.  After that, G-d put the third and fourth in line in Eve's tummy.  And she felt no pain until it was time for her to have a baby.  And when people die, their soul goes up to heaven and gets into the line.  At the end.  And they wait for their turn to be born again.

...

This is the story of the soul.  The line-waiting.  Waiting for one's turn to be born into this World.  According to my daughter.  My eight-year old daughter.

We saw Damn Yankees last night so Juliet has a completely different idea of the "soul". I think I was asked a dozen questions about the soul and it's availability for purchase. ;)
