Life with Elayna

Elayna: "Why do supervillains steal money?"
Me: "Um. Because they... want money?"
Elayna: "No, I mean - they can just steal everything else they want. So they don't *need* money."
Me: "Well, if they just want to go to the store for some bread and milk... they might not feel like stealing the bread and milk. I mean, it's a lot of hassle to go to for a small thing. So the money would come in handy for that."
Elayna. "Mommy. He's a supervillain. Supervillains don't go to the grocery store."
Me: "Okay, well, he sends a minion. But maybe the minion's not good at stealing. So he gets caught, and then the supervillain's down a minion and still doesn't have his bread and milk. Trust me, money can come in handy."
Elayna: "And another thing. Why do supervillains want to destroy the world? I mean, they live in the world. Hello?"
Adam: "Like The Tick says: 'You can't destroy the world! That's where I keep all my stuff!'"

This is what the drive to school is like.
