Walking home from school…
Alice: “Daddy, what’s an angel?”
Hmmm. Right. OK. An angel is a sort of magical being with wings, a bit like a religious fairy. In the Bible, they help God out in Heaven, and only very rarely come to Earth. When they do come to Earth, it’s usually to pass on God’s messages.
A: “Are you an angel, Daddy?”
A: “Just tell me: Are you an angel?”
OK, Alice. Yes. Yes, I am an angel.
