As a father, I find myself asking unusual questions of my children. Here's one from two mornings ago:
"Stephen, why do you have toothpaste on your face?"
His answer took about 2 minutes. Note that I asked this at the breakfast table and he had not brushed his teeth yet that morning.
Others recently include:
"How did the sand get in your shorts?"
"What was in the macaroni?"
"Do you want the blue ice cream?"
and last but not least...
"Do we need more dinosaurs in the soup?"
