Five Minute Friday: Because

(So, I’ve been participating in a “writers’ flash mob” of sorts called Five Minute Friday. In response to a one-word prompt, hundreds of writers sit down and write for five minutes flat. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font or punctuation; unscripted and unedited. Here’s today’s edition…setting the timer….)

Five Minute Friday: Because



Generally speaking…that’s not the answer we want to hear.



Why not?


Sorry, but I want a little more information, please.

Because, why?

Because, why not?

As parents, we often give the “because” answer.

And many times, there is no better answer.

Sometimes, it’s just “because.”

It’s hard to blame our kids for not being satisfied with that answer.

But, there you have it.

Sometimes, it’s just “because.”

When life answers my questions with “because” – I usually push back.

Because, why?

Sometimes, I learn a little more.

Sometimes, I don’t.

I don’t really know why.

I guess it’s just because.


Y??? Because.
