This officially-sanctioned Small Rebellion (a small but mighty act of defiance against Adultitis and the rules that don’t exist) is inspired by National Ask A Question Day. The most popular three-letter word for three-year-olds is “Why?” Kids are endlessly curious and are always asking questions. As we get older, the curiosity fades and the questions slow to a trickle.
Because we’re afraid to admit we don’t know something and we don’t want to appear foolish. And if we happen to be in a conversation that turns to a subject we know know nothing about, we fake like we do while scanning for the nearest fire escape.
The Mission: Ask somebody a question about something you have always been kind of curious about. And it has to be a REAL person, not Google. And then, at some point during the week, come back here and share your question along with the answer you got. Simple. Odds are a lot of people have wondered the same thing, and we’ll all have a chance to learn something new!

P.S. People actually enjoy answering questions about something they’re experts in, so instead of them thinking you’re some ignorant fool, you’ll actually probably make their day.
