Reese got picked to ask a question yesterday, and I fully expected him to launch into a story about something! But here's the conversation.....I was so in love with Reese's last answer....
Crush: (in his most surfer-dude accent) What's your question little dude?
Reese: Why are you a turtle?
Crush: (pauses & looks puzzled) Woah. Dude. That's really existential... I. Don't. Know. See this thing on my back...
Reese: That's your shell!
Crush: Right on! I'm a turtle because I have a shell. Tell me, little Dude. Why are YOU a human?
Reese: Because I was made by God!
