What's that for?

A conversation between me and Jerry, who will be three in one week:

M: Why do we have eyes?
J: So we don't run into things.

M: Why do we have ears?
J: So I can hear me.

M: Why do we have hands?
J: To hold onto things.

M: Why do we have feet?
J: So we can walk.

M: Why do we have legs?
J: So we can walk.

M: Why do we have noses?
J: To smell.

M: Why do we have teeth?
J: To chomp the food that Daddy makes.

M: Why do we have hair?
(another pause)
J: So when it gets long you can cut it.

Jerry, I love you too much.

You have a riveting web log and undoubtedly
must have atypical & quiescent potential for
your intended readership. May I suggest that
you do everything in your power to honor
your Designer/Architect as well as your audience.
Please remember to never restrict anyone's
opportunities for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything, a season for every
activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time
to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time
to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and
a time to rebuild. A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to
scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time
to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose. A time to keep and
a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time
to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak
up. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for
war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
