You may remember a childhood journal entry that I posted a while back. Flipping through the same journal I came across this prayer, written in surprisingly legible cursive:

Dear God,
Please keep all the animals safe tonight. Please help us learn more about you, because we never learn enough. Please help us get along. Thank you for the world and everything in it. Please let us have sweet dreams. Please help us not to go to the bathroom in our beds. Please (etc.) help us NOT to throw up tonight. Amen.
It's a good thing God meets us where we are. Even when we are (apparently) dealing with some tough issues. Or maybe I wasn't actually dealing with those particular issues. It's hard to tell given the very ambiguous language. Either way, at least I knew how to pick out stylish outfits.
