My daughter the gnostic

Me: What's that you made?
Her: It's Shootplane, he shoots fire at night so kids aren't scared, but if they're scared, he sends ghosts to play with them!  Pretend it has a mouth and eyes and talks to you.
Me: Okay.  Hi Shootplane, what's going on?
Her (as Shootplane): Last night I shot fire and made the earth planet!
Me: That's great, but I thought you told me God made the earth.  [Referring to an earlier conversation.]
Her (as Shootplane): Actually, God is my cousin.  He didn't want to make the earth planet so he let me do it.
