The evening of January first…. I was lying in bed feeling sick, when Malin decided to join me. It was late, I was sick, she should have been tired, but…. instead, the girl was full of questions. Like:
When was God created?
Why did God create Satan?
And many, many more in that line of thought. Then we came to this bit of conversation:
Malin: …and God is the most important thing to everybody. Except robbers.
Me: (because what else would I have said?) Yeah.
Malin: Do we have a police station in our town?
Me: There’s one in Jackson and one in Hazard.
Malin: Well, maybe we could go down sometime and check out all the robbers.
Me: Why would you want to do that?
Malin: I just think it would be cool to see if we recognize any of them.
