When God Clocks Out

Three 8th grade boys shoot the breeze on the couch in my room,.

Shawn: "I think I'm schizophrenic. I keep hearing noises of stuff that's not really there."

Brian casually asks, "What do you mean?"

Shawn: "I heard a clunking noise on our stairs last night."

This gets Brian's attention, "What time was it?" he inquires, a serious tone in his voice.

"10:30 OR 11:00. I don't know..."

"Oh," Brian replies, losing interest. "Cuz at 3am, God takes a break."


Now Jonathon joins in, "That's when the devil comes out."


Brian adds knowingly, "Yeah. Cuz God's taking his break."

[His what?!]

Shawn scowls, "Dude, that's messed up."

"I know."

Two out of three of these boys sincerely believe that "God takes a break" at 3am and lets the devil run the show for a while.

Where do they get this stuff?!
