On the bright side

My 3-year-old grandson, Kyle, was putting a Pinnochio puzzle together. He asked me, "Did you ever see the Pinnochio video?"

I replied, "Yes, a long time ago.""Did any kids watch it with you?" Kyle continued.

"No. You were still living up in heaven."

"Well," he said, "let's watch it now!"

I replied: "We can't. Somebody messed up the VCR and broke it."

He retorted with assurance: "Well, it wasn't me; I was still living up in heaven."
