When the girls ask questions … well, that makes up my Friday Go Ask Daddy posts.
But what if dad asks the questions?
I’ve done just that. I signed up for Q4KIDZ from Parents Together, so technically, they’re questions I’ve been given to give my girls. But that’s cool. These questions have started some intriguing conversations.
Here’s what I asked, and what they answered. Most responses were clever and endearing. Most centered on food. (Where did they get that?) Only one was disturbing. You’ll see the one. (It’s not the first one with bad words in it.) It just tells me I have more daddying to do, that’s all.
Try them out with your kids. Register here for free daily questions by email or text.
Question: If you could create a restaurant, what would it look like, what would you call it, and what would be on the menu?
Elise: Mine is Soup ‘N’ Shit, where there’s a bunch of broths and stuff you can put in them. Then, there’s another bar where you can put toppings and stuff. It would look like a bowl and the seats would look like things in soup.
Marie: It would be called Hot Topic and I’d serve food that would burn everyone’s mouth, literally. It would be all black, except for the food. Or I’d have Bouncing Bunny, and just serve alcoholic beverages.
Grace: Mine would be called Metrocam. They’d serve burgers, barbecue, pizza and spaghetti. It would kinda look like Sonic, but it would be orange and green and have Metrocam on a tall sign, with flames.
Elise: It would be made out of metal and there’s a barbecue at the end. You have to smell your way out.
Marie: It would be made out of food so they could eat their way through. And there’d be more food at the end for a prize.
Grace: My maze would be made of mirrors to make it harder. And the end would be … ME!!!! AND SOME CASH.
Question: You and some friends are in a band. What is the name of the band? What kind of music do you play?
Elise: Finding Infinity, and we’d play like covers of all types of songs.
Marie: Obviously Hide My Pigeons, and we would steal other people’s music.
Grace: The band would be Sonic, and it would be rock or pop music. 👍
Question: If you could make your bedroom turn into a different place very night, what would that place be?
Elise: A soccer field or the beach.
Marie: The sky, so I could sleep in the clouds.
Question: What’s one thing you’ve learned from your dad (or someone special who loves you) in the last year?
Elise: To take bitches’ souls.
Marie: Grandpa always tells me that life’s a bitch, and then you die.
Grace: Marie taught me to be fashionable. Daddy taught me how to build a campfire.
Question: Think of a book or movie you didn’t like. How could you have made it better?
Elise: That space movie, where she just floated around the whole time (“Gravity”). I would have had more action and get her out of space faster and show more of her on earth after she returned.
Marie: I didn’t like “Thin Wood Walls.” It would have been better with pictures and a lot fewer words.
Grace: That space movie (“Space Warriors”) with the boy who looked and sounded like a girl. There should have been a manlier man and better actor. And, more action.
