...to questions my daughter has asked me in the past 24 hours:
1. "Well, yeah, I do think the Beatles probably ate a big bowl of ice cream when they got home from work. What flavors do you think they like?"
2. "No, I do not think Daddy wants you to stick that up his nose. In fact, I'm pretty sure he doesn't."
3. "No, you cannot hold Mei-Mei. She does not like it. Yeah, that? What you're doing right now? DON'T. Put the cat DOWN."
4. "Yes, there is poop in the cat boxes. Yeah, it's pretty smelly."
5. "Well, if you want to eat a block of dry ramen noodles for a snack, I suppose I don't see the harm in it."
6. "In that picture? Oh, that big pile is George's fan mail. The boxes are candy - jelly babies. Yep, because he likes candy."
7. "What's in his mouth? Uhh...candy. Yeah, it's, um, candy." [It was a cigar.]
8. "Yeah, I think the Beatles probably liked to drink water."
9. "I guess strawberries could smell like cabbage."
10. "No, I do not think Ellie wants to wear that necklace. Please stop whacking her with it."
11. "No, you cannot go outside and get the mail while naked. Just putting on shoes doesn't count."
12. "What's in Ringo's hand? Uhh...a drumstick. I think it's a drumstick." [It was a cigarette.]
13. "Sure, it can be time. I'll get it out for you. 8:30 a.m. can be time for Play-Doh if you want it to be."
14. "No, I will not give you any more whipped cream on your strawberry pancakes. Eat some strawberries, eat some pancake. But no more whipped cream."
15. "Yes, I think the Beatles liked to eat pie. Probably cake too."
