Why? Why-y?  
You know what's downright scary? Beside the fact that our phone connection is still having a mind of its own...

I was on my way to the small supermarket two streets away when a few young kids (in our corner of the city we know almost everyone) came running up to me and started asking about school and it's purpose. *headdesk*

Kid A: "Why do we have to go school at all?"

Me: "You want to be independet one day, right?

Kid B: "Why?"

Me: "Uhm, cause... it's easier in life if you are."

Kid A: "Why?"

Me: "You can make your own decisions, you can live they way you want."

Kid A: "Why?"

Me: "Oh god, it just IS!"

Kids: "Why-y?"

That was when I facepalmed and flailed alot. The comparison is not funny. No-hope. *shakes finger* Even if it does sound cute.

As it does in German: Why-y -> Warum-i. *luffs* I'm so going to use that on my mom. ^^

Of course kids always ask why. They want to see how far they can push you before you scream "BECAUSE I SAID SO!!!"
