“Mommy why is there a line through me?” little Sammy asked. He was only three years old and did not recognize every sign at the new preschool.

His mother smiled at his description of what he saw.

“It is not really through you honey. It means no boys can go in this room.”

“Why?”

“Because.”

“Why?”

“You’re a boy.”

“Why?”

“God made you that way?”

“Why?”

“Because Sammy is a boy’s name.”

“No mommy I have a friend named Sammy who is a girl.”

“Anyway, you cannot go in this room.”

“Why?”

You are not a girl!”

“Okay mommy!”

  1. Great take on the prompt! You capture that circular thinking of a child that after a while, begins to break down our easy answers to why. Your flash give a fresh perspective through the eyes of a child.
