THINGS I'D ASK MY PARENTS AS A KID

  1. But what time is it, really?
    Days, weeks, months out from the start or end of Daylight Saving Time, and I was still torn. WHAT WAS TIME EVEN.
  2. What if I don't blink enough and I hurt my eyes?
    I think I only asked this once, and it was one of those times that a simple but firm "Stop worrying about that" completely sufficed.
  3. Where does the skin go when you cut yourself?
    I'd look for it every time I crashed my bike. Never found it.
  4. Is the heat on? It's cold.
    I'd say this within two minutes of entering a car in the winter, without fail. My parents' response usually depended on how many months we were into winter. Lotta teeth gritting, though. That was pretty standard.
