Biblical reinterpretation

I want bwead wiv almon' butter," Seth requested at lunchtime today.

"Well, that's good. Bread and almond butter will make you healthy and strong," I encouraged, "like Daniel. Do you want to be like Daniel?"

I was surprised at his answer. "No way!"

"What do you mean?" I thought he must have misunderstood. "Why don't you want to be like Daniel?"

"I don't wan' be like Daniel," Seth repeated, stretching his arms up in the air like the picture of Daniel in the bottom of the lions' den in our Daniel storybook. "He couldn't get out!"

So in Seth's Revised Version, Daniel doesn't make it, apparently?!
The poor kid needs some more (childlike) faith... lol.
