So, the conversation with a young person in the New System:

 

Son:  "Mom, let's walk from the Atlantic to the Pacific? All my friends are doing it!"

You: "Over my dead body"

Son: "What is a dead body?"

You: " Well, it was an expression used a long time ago to mean 'I'd rather be dead than do that'

Son: "What is it like to be dead---to be old--to be sick---to be dying---etc"

You: "Go ask your father"

The list is so extensive we will constantly be correcting our speech and/or explaining what we used to mean by saying (that phrase)!

Well we will have an eternity to change or correct our speech if needed. You're absolutely right.

Now you've got my brain to thinking about if, we will be allowed to continue eating meat. Probably won't need it after our body reaches a certain point or as we grow closer to perfection. Adam and Eve didn't eat me.

I hope so too. One thing is for sure, a good sense of humor will always be around. Some of the comments I've read are very funny. Lol! :D
