Because I Said So


When I was a little girl, and my parents told me to do something, or not do something, there were no ifs, ands or buts about it. BUT I did sometimes do this game with my father:

“Waarom?”

“Daarom.”

“Waarom daarom?”

“Daarom waarom daarom.”

“Waarom daarom waarom daarom?”

Etc., until I lost count.

Now I do the same with my kids:

“Why?”

“Because.”

“Why because?”

“Because because.”

“Why because because?”

“Because because because.”

“Why because because because?”

“Because because because because.”

“Why because because because because?”

“Because because because because, because.”

“Why because because because because because?”

“Because because because because because because.”

“Why because because because because because because?”

“Because because because because because because because.”

Etc., until someone loses count.  I just thought I’d share that, if for no other reason than that it looks neat. But also because I took the daily writing challenge of a few days ago, which was to pick a random word and Google it on Images, and pick the eleventh image to write about. I picked a random word with my eyes closed. It was “because”. The eleventh image on Google Images was the one pictured above. My post about politeness came about the same way. It’s a pretty cool way to come up with ideas.

  2. That’s another thing you could write about, the things we do, that our parents used to do! (And some of them we back then thought we would never do!)
