so HE'S the cupid!

My niece drew a picture of a heart with an arrow through it.  So, I drew a picture of cupid shooting an arrow.  She asked, "What's that?"  I told her, "That is cupid.  He shoots arrows at people's heart to make them fall in love."  She pondered, "Well, does it come out on Valentine's Day?"

the drawing..

My niece: (thought for a while and said): You haven't been shot by the cupid yet, because you are NOT in love.  Auntie, Can you see cupid?
Me: No because he is invisible.
Niece inquired: Well, is he even real?
Me: No, he is a fictional character.
Niece (with her ever inquiring mind asked): What does fictional character mean?
Me:  Character means a person, and fictional means fantasy or make believe.

Our conversation paused for a while...

Niece:  How do you fall in love?
Me:  Well when you see someone you like, you get nervous, your hands start sweating, your heart falls into your stomach and splashes your innards and short circuits your brain.
Niece:  NAAH-AAH.  That is not how you fall in love.  How do you really fall in love?
Me:  Well, maybe God allows you to fall in love.
Niece: Oh!  So HE'S the cupid!
