What is the trickiest question to answer that a child has asked you?
Well.. this is not exactly a question but more of a suggestion. Still i would like to share it.
Years back, when my girl was young, I thought of training her on how to use money in a store. I explained to her that everything there has a price and we were to use money to pay for anything that we want.
I thought that my then three year old, would have understood but later that night; as i was counting the leftover money money that was left in my purse, she was watching me closely and noticed my frown. When she asked me what was the matter, i did not think before answering her, "We do not have enough money."
She said to me, "Why don't we buy money?"
The trickiest question I almost had to answer was I spoke of in one of the military wife hubs I wrote. It was in 1974. We were having a sex ed unit for our six grade students. It was the last day and we were having a large group Q&A session. One little boy raised his hand and asked, Does it hurt?
O, my. Heart raced, brow wrinkled, sweat pored. I avoided and avoided. Finally his hand was the only one left.
So, I reluctanlty acknowledged him. Does it hurt, he asked, when you have a baby? You know, I just wanted to kiss him!!!
It's been about two years, but when my Godson was in first grade a classmate told him that he hated him, not once but many times over the course of the year. My Godson just came home and told his parents, and then me who tried to dilute the negativity and remind him that it must be something within that little boy that makes him feel so much hate.
His question was why, why do people hate? His parents and I still have no answer that doesn't sound like we, too harbor anger.

If you were asked to sell 5 years of your life, how much would it cost? Would you accept $500,000?So you wake up tomorrow with the cash in a bag, you are 5 years older and you have missed 5 years of news. A kind of Rip Van Winkle question.

What are some seemingly Strange or Irrelevant Job Interview Questions you have been asked recently?Creative, odd and irrelevant-sounding questions have been asked before, but in the 2010s, I think some may be more unexpected than usual, from what I've briefly heard. Is it a trend?
