“Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers”
I wonder what Voltaire would think of Adam? If I had to make a conservative quess, I’d say that 90% of the words he utters come in the form of questions. I don’t think I’ve every encountered anyone that talks as much as he does (not even his Mom).
I remember one especially exasperating day, our conversation went something like this:
Me: Adam, please just stop talking.
Me: Because you’ve been talking nonstop for four hours.
Adam: What’s ‘four hours’ mean?
Me: It’s the length of time you’ve been talking.
Adam: Is it like a day?
Me: No, it’s only part of a day.
Adam: What’s ‘part of a day’ mean?
Me: One day has twenty-four hours, you’ve been talking nonstop for four hours, that’s one-sixth of a day.
Adam: What’s ‘one-sixth’ mean?
Me: Go ask your mother.
