Me: (as we drive past the overflowing funeral home) Wow, that's a big viewing. They must have been very well loved.
Viv: Is it a party?
Me: A little bit. Someone has died, and people are coming to say good bye.
Viv: Oh. Like at my birthday.
Me: Uhm, not precisely. A funeral is sad sometimes, because someone has died.
Viv: Like daddy.
Me: Yes, like daddy.
Viv: Remember on the bus, when you showed me where daddy was? (last week on the bus when we passed the cemetery, I told her that was where we put Tianyu)
Me: Yes, right.
Viv: Does he live there?
Me: Not precisely. When someone dies, their body stops moving, and we bury it.
Viv: Oh. (long pause) And then they wake up.
Me: No sweetie. The body stops working, and they kind of become a ghost.
Viv: And then they wake up.
Me: DARMOK AND JILAD AT TENAGRA.
Viv: You're silly.
