"Hanging Out" --- SOLD
My son is asking a lot of questions these days. It started out with "What's that?" and now, depending on the answer to the first question, he asks what the thing is doing. So, if it's a tree, for instance, he says "what's the tree doing?". I say things like "the tree is growing," or "it's blowing in the wind." But he keeps asking, as if my answer isn't quite right, and after a while I hit my fallback answer which is "it's hanging out." For some reason he seems to be satisfied when things are just hanging out. Now he's getting into "why?". So, if he asks, "why are these strawberries hanging out?", can I in good conscience answer "they just are"?
