One person writes a series of “why” questions.
Another person writes a series of “because” answers.
This can be done in any order or at the same time, as long as participants do not see the others writing.
I hoodwinked Murph into doing this with me today. Here’s what we ended up with when we put them side by side:
- Why don’t people like Indian mounds? — because 2 is the square root of 4
- Why can’t I have Matt’s pumpkin? — because Grover Cleveland said so
- Why can’t the city just give me my crib? — because it rained in November
- Why do I do these damn things? — because there are only 1,000 left
