"My wook fwiends and me are gonna hunt dinosaurs when we grows up and shoot 'em wif guns," little kid told me.
"Dinosaurs are extinct, remember? They aren't alive anymore. You could search for their bones, be a dinosaur scientist."
"No! Some are alive, we's gettin' those," he insisted.
"No, not really, hon. Every single dinosaur died. There are no more dinosaurs."
He thought about that for a moment. "So, are theys in Heaven with God now?"
"Uh--maybe? Not sure on that one, really."
"We'll find out when we die. I hope them dinosaurs is in Heaven. I feel sad they died. Will we's die one day, mumum?"
"Yep, everyone dies. Not for a long time, though."
"How we gonna die?"
"Probably in our sleep of old age, in a very long time from now." It made me sad to think about. He was quiet for a minute and I believed he was having similar thoughts.
"No!" he said, enthusiastically, "Not me. I's gonna run myself over wif a motorcycle, 'at's what I'm gonna do! I could do you, too!" He seemed excited at the thought.
"Hmmm. No thanks."
"Why? Why no?" I had obviously insulted him, turning down his generous offer of euthanasia via vehicular homicide.
"I...I don't know, little kid. I'm done talking about this now, it's sad." I didn't really feel like having him attempt to convince me that this was how I should die.
"Well, 'at's how me's and mine wook fwiends are doin' it."
Yet another impressive life goal.
