My son loves to ask questions. He is very inquisitive. Some of the questions can really trouble us cause we just simply don't know the answers. A few days ago, The spiderman 3 was on air. He was an ardent fan of spiderman. So, here comes the question,
'Why does the spiderman shoot his organic web from his wrists, not his...ehmm buttock like what spiders usually do?'
And our answer was, 'Because shooting from his buttock won't make him too popular cause then, he would be smelly...'
But at the end, we still doubt he was satisfied with the answer.
When talking about spiders...the imagination escalated. Another question was asked. This time, we seriously thought that our son may, perhaps, possibly be a genius? :)
The question went like this,
'Why is the glue from spider's web never go dry like the ones we use for art work?'
After a long pause, as time was spent thinking of a suitable answer from my too worn out brain, I came out with an answer, 'Ehmm....why don't you ask the spider?'( Yeah I know, very pathetic answer... boohooo)
Hubby's came out with a slightly better answer, 'Are you sure it wasn't dry? How would you know?' Answering a question with another question...which made him confused that for an answer. Well, at least that would make him go quiet for a while, processing the answer until he realized that his question was never answered. When that time comes, it would be another repetitive of QA sessions to satisfy his inquisitive mind. :)
