People ask me questions all the time. Some of those questions I can answer, some I cannot answer and some I will not answer. I wish people would ask me questions I could answer and look good about it. However, it never happens.
The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage asks me questions all the time. After 43 years, I have finally figured out her questions. Most usually require one word answers. For somebody like me who spends most of his time preaching and writing, boiling an answer down to one word is something that is quite difficult.
The one great thing about my wife is, when she asks me a question, she does not really want an answer, because she already has the answer. I do not know how wives have developed this kind of intellectual mystique. I have just never had the opportunity to ask her. This probably would be the main question I would ask. Sometimes, living in the dark is okay.
Some people ask questions to get information. Some people ask questions to show off how smart they think they are, which, merely proves how dumb they actually are. (Do not let them know that I said this, or they may have some questions for me.) Then some people ask questions in order to trick you.
Did you know you can get the Pasadena Journal weekly print publication for more news and information?
