Deep Thoughts

What do 5-year-olds think about while driving in the car?

Mary usually has lots of questions for me as we drive around town. Generally, they are connected to something we have driven past, or a place we went. But sometimes, they are just random.

Like yesterday. After being rather quiet for some time, she suddenly asked, "What do they do at the circus when it's raining?"

It was a bright sunny day, and there wasn't a circus or clown in sight.

How do you answer this kind of question?

"I'm sorry Mary. I really don't know. I guess they stay inside those big tents."
