There's one thing people quickly realize around kids. The little inquisitors have a zillion questions about literally everything on the face of Earth. Although one might find it adorable and fascinating at first, once the questions start hitting a bit too close to home — which they inevitably do — the novelty quickly turns into an overwhelming urge to run and hide. However, when directed at someone else, a child's neverending curiosity combined with their naturally occurring bluntness and innocence makes for amaaaaa...zing entertainment. This became quite evident when a third-grade teacher asked some of her students to write letters to God with whatever questions they might have for the Almighty.
As you can imagine, the kids' seriously-intended queries were all kinds of comedic gold as they penned letters that were equal parts adorable, hilarious, and head-scratching.
