We have been blessed, oh so blessed, and I say that in a very Unitarian, not exclusionary way, to have many, many questions about how things work answered for us by THE WORLDS BEST MECHANICAL ENGINEER. There is another hysterically funny, mind-bendingly great post over at Suttonhoo, where TWBME answers another of Joe-Henry's many questions about how things work.
Mr. TWBME also left a comment that Joe-Henry might be able to answer a few questions for him. It hit me like I was wearing a gong on my head (or perhaps a mechanically engineered buzzer of the type they use on Jeopardy!). Here's my idea - Joe-Henry routinely dispenses with pearls of wisdom to me, because six year olds have this uncanny ability to not get in their own way with manners and rules and such, and their truth is absoute and uncluttered. He teaches me daily how to clean up my act and be a better human, and stop obsessing over the wrong things.
So I thought I'd start a new weekly thing here on my blog: Questions for the Six Year Old Buddha. It will deal with matters of the heart and how to be a better person and make good decisions. Any questions asked anonymously will be automatically deleted, and no sex questions please. Unless you want to get confused even further.
If anyone has any questions for the little guy, let me know, and I'll ask, and we'll post the answers on Friday.
