On Omnipotence

Elazar (first grade) continuing the thought from last week.  (It isn't even bedtime.):  Hashem can't do everything.  He can't kill Himself.  He can't touch His body.  He can't eat.  He can't do thumb wrestle.

Then I asked him how Hashem might be able to do thumb wrestle.  He thought about that.  I suggested that Hashem can move my thumb.  He asked, "But how would you see His thumb?"  True, I wouldn't be able to.  I said that Hashem could create a hand to wrestle with me.  Then he asked if he could daven for Hashem to play with him.
