THINGS I'D ASK MY PARENTS AS A KID
- •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.
- •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.
- •Where does the skin go when you cut yourself?I'd look for it every time I crashed my bike. Never found it.
- •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.
