The Daily Interrogation Otherwise Known as Our Commute

Piper seems to save her big life inquiries for the drive to and from school. Thank goodness it’s only an eight minute commute.

Yesterday, we planned her romantic future in She Love Me, She Loves Me, Too.  Today, we’re working on her monetary one.

She’s also began announcing “Question!” just to let us know what’s coming.  We’re grateful for the warnings. Brace yourself.

“Question! Do robbers have to pay taxes?”

“I don’t think so, Piper.  They just take stuff. They’re not know for their ethics in reporting income.”

“Question! Will I have to pay taxes?”

“Well, if you make enough money, yes.”

“Question! What do they do with the taxes stuff?”

“They collect all the money and build schools, libraries, roads, and stuff like that.”

“Question! What if I become an artist?”

“Then you probably won’t have to pay taxes.”

We may have just solidified her career path, too.

  1. Artists don’t pay taxes? Seeing Piper’s drawings, she will be a highly successful artist, and so will have report-able income. No escaping the tax man, though clergy might get a break 🙂

    • I suppose good artists pay taxes, but most I know are the starving variety. Your words about Piper’s art are too kind, Beth. Really. Too kind 🙂 She does have quite the imagination, though. She could probably make a buck or two as a story teller.
