This is the new question.


Why is it time to go to bed?

Why is it time to take a bath?

Why do I have to leave my toy here?

Why does Daddy have to go to work?

Why is the mailman?

Pretty much everything we say to Desi...he responds with "Why?"

I don't think he really knows what he's saying.  I mean, his grasp on the English language is still very far from perfect (for instance, he says Pee-Mad-Ow for piano).  But, it's still pretty funny and cute. 

Here's a conversation from the other morning:

Me: "Desi, it's time to go to go to school."

Desi: "Why?"

Me: "Because Daddy needs to go to work."

Desi: "Why?"

Me: "Because I need to make money."

Desi: "Why?"

Me: "Because I owe money to the man."

Desi: "Why?" 

Me: "Because I wasted it all on cheap booze and women."

Desi: "Why?"

Me:  "Because I was tempted by the devil."

Desi: "Why?"

Me: "Why do you ask soo many questions?"

Desi: "Cookie."

We'll see how this conversation looks in a couple years.

I am looking forward to the day when Desi asks "why" for the 50th time and you respond "Because I said so." I will laugh myself off whatever I am sitting on....

I can't NOT chime in on this Supreme Court thing

So, it's no secret on this page that I am rapidly pro-life.  I don't beat around the bush on this topic.  But, what you may not know...
