"I don't want to die, ever."

Tonight I was helping Mo get ready for bed after his bath. He stopped and looked at me, suddenly fearful. Out of nowhere, he says:

Mo: I don't want to die!

Me: What makes you think you're going to die?

Mo: I don't want to die, ever.

Me: You don't have to worry. You won't die until you're very, very old. It's nothing you have to worry about right now.

Mo: But I don't want to die ever.

Me: Well, you can live longer by making sure you stay healthy. And you can stay healthy by eating fruits and vegetables and exercising and getting a good nights sleep.

Mo: Really, then I'll live forever?

Me: Well, uh...

Mo: Like until I'm 26?

Me: Yeah. Until you're 26. And even longer than that. Way longer.

Me: Wow.
