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:
“Daarom waarom daarom.”
“Waarom daarom waarom daarom?”
Etc., until I lost count.
Now I do the same with my kids:
“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.
I love this! And I love saying, “Because I said so.” 😉
I rarely do, but when I do, it ends up being this game.
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!)
In my case that would be opening Pandora’s box. I’ll just stick to some things with my dad.
Hmm, yay, nay, hmm, thought it might be funny though!(?)
Nope, most of the parenting was done by my mother, and there wasn’t much that was funny about it, and I make it a point not to do anything the same. But you gave me an idea for a post about what my dad was very good at…
Very cool indeed! I think I shall try that some time … just because.
