B Is For Because
I like Because. It gives me a sense of justice, an answer that doesn't have or require further explanation. Why does two plus two equal 4? Why does the sun rise in the east and set in the west? Why did they invent toilet paper? Why do bears hibernate? Questions that require only one answer: Because!
When I was homeschooling my children I would ask them the normal teacher questions, when one day I heard them echoing what I used to answer in school. “Because!” And they said it with the same tone and conviction I had; like “You should already know” or “Duh” gesturing with a slight wave of their hands. And I caught myself answering the same way my teachers would: “Because is not a complete sentence!” Well, yes it IS a complete sentence! It transcends generations and all the rules of grammar. Because is its own justice.
So, that's why I'm doing this blogging thing. Because! (slightly waving hand at myself) It is the answer of itself, and because of its own integrity it will reveal more of the answer the further I go. Because is sufficient unto itself.
Okay, so here is a picture of my bear. He's been with me for quite some time now. He's attached to my backbag and goes wherever I go. See him? He's enjoying the spring view and getting ready to share what legends we've come across; as soon as I get a handle on my blog.
And well... you know... just.... because!
I like because too. They should change the rules of grammar! :)ReplyDelete
Happy A-Z challenge!
They should change it! They add words that become a fad to the dictionary that have no business being a word, or in the dictionary...why not change a grammar rule?! :PDelete
Good Luck with the A to Z. It can be a bit of a game getting to Z when you are not used to blogging every day. But it is a great way to meet other bloggers so I hope it goes well. I am also helping this year and have a lot of blogs to visit, but will try and get back at some point.ReplyDelete

Just to say you have word verification (CAPTCHA) activated and it can stop folk commenting, it is best to turn it off even if it is only for the A to Z..
Thank you for bringing it to my attention, Rob! I think it's turned off now. How to see you at the Z, too! :DDelete
That because word can come in so handy!ReplyDelete
Yes it does, Karen! :PDelete
