“Mamma, which shampoo does a lion use?”
“Lions don’t use shampoo!”
“But their hair is so beautiful. They must be using shampoo.”
“Lions have a mane, not hair.”
“Okay, mane. Which shampoo do they use on their mane?”
“I told you. They don’t use shampoo.”
“Then why do girls use shampoo?
“To keep their hair clean, and to make it look nice.”
“But lions have nice hair too. Why don’t they use shampoo?”
“Shut up. I’m busy.”
I knew that was coming. I may be only six, but I know the ultimate answer to every question- “Shut up, I’m busy!”
