excerpt from an actual conversation between L. and me, yesterday
"How does that drawbridge over the canal go up? How do the people know if it's going up so they can have time to get out of the way? Is that water down there? Why is water a fluid? Whatis that brown stuff in there? Why is there a gate over there? What's this I just picked up off the sidewalk? Do those boats ever go anywhere? Will I ever get any cavities? When am I going to learn to swim? How many more swimming lessons will it be before I learn? What is Grammy doing right now? Why do I keep asking you questions? Why do you keep saying 'I don't know'?"
