Week 237- holidays, John Humphrys and serial question askers...

Easter holidays, eh?

They go on for approximately forever.

The indoor Easter Egg hunt at my sister’s house on Easter Sunday feels like it took place about a hundred years ago.

Asking someone what they did for Easter Sunday now would be about as annoying as people wishing you a Happy New Year when you go back to work on January 6th and you think, ‘mate, shut up and get over it.’

But we’re officially stiiiiiiiiiill on Easter break.

My daughter has turned into a serial question asker in the last 14 days.

They come thick and fast, and there’s no obvious link between any of them so you’re totally caught off guard.

There’s no Mastermind-esque specialist subject.

It’s like:

‘Why shouldn’t I pick my nose if it gets it clean?’

‘When do we die?’

‘Do carrots have sugar in them?’

‘What’s ham made of?’

‘Why are poos brown?’


Sorry contestant- you’re out of time.

My brain runs on about 1.5 cylinders at the best of time, and now I have my own personal John Humphrys with an exhaustive list of questions on a no-holes-barred list of topics.

Does anyone ACTUALLY know for sure if a pig is aware it is going to be turned into bacon?

Or who chose to name beef- beef?

I thought work was tough, but it is a piece of piss compared to this.

So my thoughts go out to the nursery staff tomorrow.

Good luck guys.

I’m going to take it easy tomorrow with a full on day of catching up with a bulging inbox and an unmanageably long to-do list.

Where as you, YOU, have to answer the pressing life questions generated by an inquisitive four-year-olds brain.
