No Questions Asked [Feb. 19th, 2012|08:54 pm]

When you live with a four year old (excuse me, almost-five-year-old), you learn that certain questions simply do not need to be asked.

Questions like "who put this green sock in the doorknob guard?" or even "WHY is this sock in the doorknob?".

You don't bother asking because the answers are "Timothy" and "I don't know."

So you learn to just skip straight to the ludicrous-sounding pronouncement "Timothy, please don't stuff your socks into the doorknob." In case you wondered what being a parent is like, it turns out a lot of it is saying sentences you never would've even dreamed of needing to say.

Well, IMO, the 4 year old is deciding to get a jump start on his college dorm room experience with Trophies!

OTOH, it could just be that I watch too much CSI. At least they aren't condoms.

Heh. In my dorm people used that as a signal to their roommate that they shouldn't enter because...amorous activities were going on inside.

Not surprising, but it works well when combined with discussion that it's a signal first.
