WHY?

Piglet: Mommy, are we in the car?

Me: Uh, yes?

Piglet: Why?

Me: So we can get to the store?

Piglet: Why?

Me: For food. We need food.

[Silence. Pondering. I begin mentally preparing my answer as to why humans need food for survival.]

Pigpen: Dump truck! Dump truck! Dump truck!

Piglet: Yes, Pigpen, those are dump trucks.

Pigpen: Why?

Piglet: Because they are!

Pigpen: Why?

Piglet: Pigpen, stop saying why. Mommy, Pigpen won't stop saying why!

Me: Does that bother you?

Piglet: Yes! It's making my ears tired!

Me: Hmmm. I bet that's annoying.

Pigpen: School bus! Bus! Bus! Bus!

Piglet: Yes, Pigpen, that's a school bus. [sighs with weight of world]

Pigpen: Why?

Piglet: Because they just ARE Pigpen! Stop saying why!

Me: It's pretty annoying when people say why all the time, isn't it?

Piglet: YES.

[Long blissful pause]

Piglet: Mommy, why is it annoying when people say why?

Me: .........
