5 Year Old Logic

So, last year I was in Denver for the New Year. The year before that I had all the kids and let them watch the ball drop the day after. My son is too young to remember it but my daughter does.

This year, my ex-wife will have the kids but I was telling my son about how the ball drops in New York. I told him when it gets 10 seconds to midnight the crowd counts down from 10 and the ball starts to drop in the middle of the city. When the crowd hits 1, the next thing they yell is "Happy New Year!!!"

So yesterday Connor came into the kitchen with some questions I really didn't understand at first. Something about "who drops the ball." When I pressed him, he broke it down for me :-)

"Ok dad, remember how you told me about the counting and the ball?" he asked.

"Yeah, buddy."

"Ok, so the people count and there's a big ball and they yell right?"

"Yeah, buddy."

"And the ball is in the middle of all those people?"

"Yeah, pal. Right in the middle of New York."

"OK. So who drops the ball? Is it God or is it Jesus?"
