The Necessity Of Invention




I turned off the kitchen faucet after doing the dishes and I heard whispering ...


*whisper whisper whisper*

Me: "What are you two whispering about?"

In unison: "Nothing!"

Me: "'Nothing' ... ??? What's the point of whispering about nothing? Come on. You had to have been whispering about something ..."

Daughter #1: "Well, we were whispering about ... whispering."

Me: "That's dumb. Who would do that? Who would whisper about whispering?"

Daughter #2: "We would, that's who ..."

Daughter #1: "And if it's so dumb, why would they have invented whispering?"
