Dumbing It Down

Ana asked me a question the other day, and my response was, “I doubt it.”

She looked at me, confused, and said, “Well, what does that mean?”

“It means,” I told her, “that I don’t think it will actually happen. Or I don’t think it’s actually true.”


“You know,” I told her, “it’s good that you ask these kinds of questions about things you don’t understand. That’s the way you learn how to speak and read and write even better than you already do. You should always ask when something confuses you!”

She thought about this for a moment, then said, “Okay, what does atoning sacrifice mean?”

That actually took longer to explain. (Would you believe it?)

We don’t dumb things down here in the Faulk house, y’all. Thankful for little spongy brains, always soaking up more and more information around here!
