Questions: Not for the Faint of Heart

I didn't know that being a mother would require I become an expert in all fields of study. Everyday I get bombarded with questions about how things work, what things are, and why they happen to be that way. Most of the time I don't have an answer. Sometimes the answer I give isn't satisfactory for my curiously independent daughter. Either way I am required to research, and I am so glad I have resources available to me. Did I mention we love the library?

Zelda (Z): What are clouds made of?
Snappy (S): Water
Z: How does it get up there?

Z: I know some animals ugh (swallow) their food without chewing, why can’t we?
S: Because we have teeth and if we don’t chew our food we could choke.

Z: Why do you have to wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle?
S: To keep you safe, because you can get hurt really bad if you crash, they go so fast.

Z: How do they make toothpaste?
S: ?

Z: How do clock hands move?
S: Little gears
Z: What’s a gear?

Z: No smoking at the gas station? How come?
S: Gas is flammable and if you smoke it could blow up the gas station
Z: Then you would have to pay for it.
S: Yes, you would have to pay for it, if you blow it up.
Z: How much does a gas station cost? How many chores would that be?

Z: What’s a waitress?
S: Someone who serves you your food.
Z: Are you a waitress?
S: No
Z: Yes you are, you serve my meals to me.

Z: Why can’t I take a walk by myself?

Z: How come birds have to land after they fly?

Z: I wish I could breathe fire.

Thanks for sharing this wonderfull humor! I laughed when I read these humorous and creative questions and answers. We were just reading a chapter in the book Why Good Things Happen to Good People about "humor" and how important it is for our health to have something to laugh about!
