Y ????

Why are leaves green? Why is water wet?

Why are there eleven players in a side? Why is a rugby ball not round?

Why do superheros like red and blue? Why does Batman wear only black?

Why does the moon change its shape? Why do stars come out only at night?

Why are there no dinosaurs left on earth? Why do elephants have big ears?

Why does Saturn have rings? Why is Pluto so small?

Why do cats eat fish, and tigers have meat? Why does a dog lick?

Why do girls like pink? Why is 'why' not spelt 'Y'?
The June Blackboard project - drabbles from A to Z, with a special bonus on Sundays- only at the Burrow.

A drabble is a story told in exactly 100 words.

All very good questions and now I'm waiting for your answers. :) Great Drabble.

Thoughts in Progress

Margot Kinberg said...

Those are really interesting questions, and like Mason, I really enjoy your Drabbles : ). They are excellent "food for thought."

L. Diane Wolfe said...

LOL! You just listened to your boys for a day, didn't you?

Tina said...

That sounds like a conversation YellowBoy and I would have...he's endlessly curious, and quite talkative. I just am amazed at what comes out of his mouth sometimes. Great questions!

Deb and Barbara said...

Confession: noted that your pots were all drabbles (which I LOVE), but only today noticed they were A-Z. And you're already on Y!!!

Okay. Will pay more attention...

Great writing! Barbara

This post could only be written by a Mom with kids!

Kathi Oram Peterson said...

Probing questions. Now where's the answers? I know, ask a teenager; they know everything.. ;)

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Excellent Rayna, so many good questions.

Have a good week
from "Y"

I can hear your boys' voices now...

I love curiosity.

This morning, my son (15 years old) came into my room and asked, "Would you ever like to swim in a kelp forest?" He flipped through his book on oceans.


"Do you know what that is?"

"At eight in the morning? Kinda..."

"Well, would you like to swim there?"


"Why not?"

"Because I might get tangled in the kelp and suffocate."

"That's only in the movies, mom."

"Well, still."

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Ha ha ha! I'm guessing these questions came from your little darlings! Another fun post, Rayna. :-)

Jan Morrison said...

very clever, my deario! I had to ration my second son's questions when he was little. He didn't seem to want the answers - just the engagement.

Some great questions! Wonderful post!

Rayna M. Iyer said...

@ Mason- if I had the answers, I would be a very wise woman indeed.

@ Margot- thank you. The brevity of a drabble, really forces you to cut to the basics, I think.

@ Diane- I seem to have been doing it forever! Wonder how my days flew by before they started asking questions?

@ Tina- kids are awesome, aren't they? How old is YB?

@ Barbara- I have been drabbling for a few days now, but the posts have not been A to Z- you missed nothing. The A to Z is a project my writing group is putting up.

@ Debra- and can be recognised for what it is only by another mother with kids or grandkids.

@ Kathi- do you have teens? Can you ask them and let me know?

@ Yvonne - thank you.

@ Alex - you must be pretty familiar with their voices by now!

@ Clarissa- I just love your son. He is so wise!

@ Shannon- thank you. And where else could they have come from?

@ Jan- it may well be a bit of that too! But I am not really cribbing!

@ SueAnn - thank you.
