Default Those annoying little questions

A small illustration


I once had to baby sit my sisters 5 year old who asked me what I was doing every five seconds. Literally. We were about to have a BBQ and the conversation went something like this:
Kid: What are you doing?
Me: Chopping onions.
Kid: Why?
Me: ‘Cause people like onions on the Barbie, you know?
Kid: Why are you wearing your sunglasses?
Me: ‘Cause the onions are making me cry
Kid: Why are they making you cry?
Me: I dunno, it’s just something that onions do, I’m not a scientist.
Kid: Why?
Me: Because I hate anything science related, prefer the unknown, and, besides, still find the fact that the human came up with stairs amazing.
Kid: Why?
Me: Because, you know, how did they do it, people? How did they figure out that stairs would get them from down here to up there?
Kid: What are you doing now?
Me: Washing the dishes
Kid: Why?
Me: Because they’re dirty
Kid: Why are they dirty?
Me: Because I’ve just used them to cut up the onions
Kid: Why are you cutting up onions?
Me: ‘Cause we’re having a Barbie
Kid: Why are we having a Barbie?
Me: Because we’re hungry
Kid: Why are we hungry?
Me: ‘Cause your body needs fuel in order to function and our fuel is food.
Kid: Why?
… I’m going to stop at this point. As you can imagine, after that annoying set of questions I ended up frying the kid on the BBQ. Not really but damn near.

and also " what is the best gun "

Didn,t even notice as much with my kids but somehow its a lot harder with other peeps kids. One of my nephews shot me several times with a BB gun. Sisters response "Be careful not to shoot uncle Davy in the face" Little fecker was aiming for my groin. She is a bit pookie though.

I combatted this by giving an explanation so long and indepth and then quizzed them on the info later. My daughters learned pretty quick to not ask unless they had about 15 minutes to spare.

I remember my kids going through that stage. Looking back, it was funny. But it was annoying. Seriously, though, that's how they learn.
