He Has Questions. I Lack Answers.

My son is known for asking questions. A LOT of questions.

And I’m known for being short on answers. VERY short.

So once again, here is a sampling of some of the questions my son has been asking lately. And either some of the answers I didn’t have or some of the answers I would like to have given.

How can such a small body contain so many questions? Now THAT'S a question for the ages.

“Can you sell rocks for money?” I don’t know, but be SURE to tell me if we can!

“How much can you sell them for?” Ummmmmmmm, I’m not sure what the going rate is in the rock market right now.

“Do you think you could survive negative 29 degrees?” As long as I was in the house. Wearing warm clothes. And had a fire going. And . . .

“Who’s the best tennis player in the world?” Well, that’s a very subjective opinion, so different people might have diff-

“Who’s the worst tennis player in the world?” Well, have you seen me play lately?

“If I need to, can I go back to high school some day?” Go back?! Let’s just get you there, first.

“How much damage can 60 mph winds do?” Ummmmm. How much damage can 60,000 questions do?

“If you have the right to remain silent, does that mean you have to be silent?” Well, in your case . . .

    Yes, you can sell rocks for money people have been doing it forever. I have to purchase some for my front flower boxes and they’re going to be very pricey. I would have him google the prices. Depending on the rarety of the stones it can get pretty high. Yes I think he could survive it if well prepared but we should look it up to be sure. Best/worst as in won the most or best as in has the most fun? First one we can google second answer is easy cause it’s me! Google, google, No you can’t most all states have age limits for highschooler. google and noooo, this is fun teach him to find the answers.
