the six year old

did you know that for every question you and i get, a six year old gets fourteen questions?

it’s true. i’ve had my six year old niece staying with me for the last couple of days because the family circus came to town, so i know this to be true from personal experience.

11:18pm on sunday night after a non-stop weekend:

six year old (still bright eyed): whats this?

me (old and jaded): it’s a chopstick.

six year old: what’s it for?

me (even older and more jaded than i was half a second ago): no answer.

six year old: is it to make chops with?
