why? why? why?

the mabster has entered into the "why?" phase. it's entertaining. it's exhausting. it's laughable. it's just plain brain-picking amusing. every day (possibly 10 times a day), we have an in depth conversation as to why something is the way it is. the gal is inquisitive at best. and by inquisitive, i mean curious as a kitten.

so for your entertaining pleasure i have provided two sample dialogues between the mabster and i. the first one is an example of how quickly she is to continuously quiz me if the answer is short, sweet, and simple. the latter dialogue displays how a discussion exists when it's the end of the day, and i'm tired of hearing, "why?" this method is daddy's absolute favorite. it seems to be that if i provide a long lengthy detailed answer that is so far completely over her head...i get the best possible answer ever. and so it begins...

(example #1)


the mabster:
why is it raining?

me: because God is sad and He's crying.

the mabster:
why is God sad?

me: because james spann is an idiot. umm, i mean, not very smart.

the mabster:
why is he not smart?

me:
i don't know. maybe he wasn't read to much as a child.

the mabster:
no bedtime stories?

me: nope.

the mabster:
why?

me: because he asked too many questions.

the mabster: why did he ask too many questions? (you get the idea...)


(example #2)

the mabster:
why is it raining?

me: because the relative humidity is at 100 percent or very close to it. for you see, a typical rainy day might be generated by a relatively gentle upward motion a couple centimeters per second. that would normally occur over 12 or 24 hours, possibly longer. the intensity of the precipitation would be directly related to the magnitude of that rising motion. the sky would first be covered by cirrus clouds, which would then thicken, lower, and eventually lead to nimbostratus clouds.

the mabster: oh. (and just like that...silence)
