Heard at our house

During our nightly reading of Bible stories tonight, we read the stories about Joseph's dreams. The dreams that involved his 11 brothers' bundles of grain bowing down to his bundle of grain and the sun, moon and 11 stars bowing down to him. All of this signifying, of course, that Joseph's parents and brothers would later on bow down to Joseph.


B: what's that? (pointing to the picture of the bundles of grain bowing down.)

Me: That's grain. The smash it to make flour for bread.

B: Why don't they just go to the store?

Me: They didn't have stores back then, kiddo. Kinda silly, huh?

B: Yeah, it sure would have been easier if they would have just gone to the store.

I continued reading the story, then I hear: Or maybe they just didn't know which aisle to look in. They should have asked where the flour was.
