Last Sunday on the way back from church, all five of us sort of drifted off into silence and inward thoughts. After a few minutes my son asked my husband, and I, a question...
7yro son: "What's a Virginian?"
Me: "A Virginian? Where from? From our history?"
7yro son: "No, from the Bible."
Me: "There are no Virginians in the Bible!" (after a moment, light goes on in mama's head. Ohhhhh, virginian!)
Me: "You mean virgin. That is someone who has not had lovin' like from their husband or wife, yet. A Virginian is someone from Virginia, like George Washington and I think Thomas Jefferson."
Husband: "Or something from Virginia."
7yro son: (unconvinced that there are no Virginians in scripture, he stares out van window)
