Question of the Day

To my son Tommy,

"What is dirt?" That is your question for the day or past couple days. Not sure where you got that question but you have politely asked nearly every Aunt, Uncle, and various relatives in the near vicinity. The first response is usually looking for some type of confirmation that they heard the extremely odd question correctly. Then, with a little encouragement from those around many fumble around and find some type of definition. If you really like the answer you say "That is beautiful!"

Your natural curiosity is really blossoming. You learn by asking and you absorb the answers. One of the answers you got explained dirt is where worms live. Later you were asked where worms live and without missing a beat you replied "in dirt"

So even if people laugh at the questio, and even if they fumble for the answer, and even if the answer is not quite beautiful, keep asking those questions!

Sincerely with love from your dad,
