8/26/13, Things that make you go Hmmm…

“Why are you hanging your monkey by his neck?”

The six-year-old is forcing his favorite stuffed marmoset’s head through a tiny coat hanger.  Its gangly limbs dangle helplessly from the noose  as the hangman hooks it onto his closet doorknob.  Is it time to call a child psychologist?

“He’s guarding the door,” he says simply. Duh, Mom. “You have to answer his riddles if you want to enter.”

“Oh. Okay?”
