    He nailed it. I've always said meaning is made and not found.

    I can't wait til my daughter starts asking why.

    Bite your tongue, Mister! hahahaha. One day soon, she'll decide to ask you every question she ever thought of...."Daddy, why does that Lady wear red?...Daddy, why are we in line? Daddy, how do spiders jump? Daddy, why does hair grow out of your ear? Daddy, why do I have toes? Daddy....are you listening to me?"

    That's a good thing I think. If I'm mindful there's a lot of fun to be had and if not then I'm the one getting the lesson.

    I think I'm going to try a game where if we are out and a question comes up that I can't (or won't) answer, it goes on the evening search list.

    My sons don't ask anymore. On the contrary, they try to civilise me. A few days ago one of them gave me Peter Bagge's comics to read. A bit hard to read because they are in English, but anyways... interesting.
