Today, when I picked Punksin up from school, she asked why the leaves fall off the trees, and I got into the whole cycle of life thing with the leaves dying, falling, the trees sleeping through winter, the joyous rebirth of spring…you know the drill. Then:
Punksin: Mommy, but pine trees have needles and they don’t fall off!
Me: That’s true. Did you learn that in school today?
Punksin: No, I learned it tomorrow or later.
Who the hell needs school?
