During one of our many storied van rides about town, we were jamming out to a childhood favorite, New Kids On The Block (NKOTB, duh!)
As prepubescent Joey belted out about the girl going away, Big E became very alarmed.
WHY DOES SHE HAVE TO GO?
Oh, Big E. Is now the time to dive into the topic of dating and breaking up? I think not.
BECAUSE SHE DOES.
That was my well-thought out response. I've been a parent for close to five years. My ability to creatively answer questions has all but dried up.
IS IT BECAUSE SHE HAS TO GO EAT BREAKFAST?
AND THEN DIE?
ONLY IF SHE IS EATING HER BREAKFAST AT THE WAFFLE HOUSE.
I'm 100.00000% sure this poster was hanging from my middle school bedroom walls. And possibly high school.
