Me: (reading the newspaper) They found new cave paintings
Hank: Cave paintings?
Me: Yup. Ages and ages ago people use to live in caves before they knew how to build houses. And they decorated the walls with paintings. Just like we do today. They were like their newspaper. They were only pictures because people hadn’t invented words yet.
Me: Everything on the earth has a job. Bees carry pollen and make honey. Worms bring air to the soil and turn it. Wolves eat deer so the deer don’t eat all the plants. Deer eat plants and tend the forest so it doesn’t over grow. Frogs eat flies and mosquitoes so they do not take over the world and people tell stories and have babies and then pass the stories on to them. These cave paintings are some of the earliest stories.
Hank: What is the picture?
Me: It is a picture of a rabbit.
Hank: Let me see… (looks at the article) Can we go see it?
Me: Yes, of course. Why do you want to go see it?
Hank: I want to see their picture. Why do you want to go see it?
