The IV Questions

Open the door, get on the floor, everybody walk the dinosaur. Boom boom, acka-lacka-lacka-Four Questions.

Q. What is Dave wearing?
A. Dave is wearing olive-colored pants and a blue polo shirt. He is pretty sure these things match, although there are no Garanimals sewn inside his clothes.

Q. How does Dave feel today?
A. Dave is happy right now, because while he's answering these questions he's also talking to his brother Lee through Google Chat.

Q. What are the factors affecting Dave's mood today?
A. Duh. Dave's chatting with Lee.

Q. Today's fourth question, suggested by Lee: She-b'khol ha-layloht anu okhlin bayn yosh'bin u'vayn m'soobin, bayn yosh'bin u'vayn m'soobin. Ha-lahylah ha-zeh, ha-lahylah ha-zeh, koolanu m'soobin?
A. Dave thinks Lee is being much too literal.

Q. Bonus FIFTH question, posed to Lee: Why did the youngest person always have to read the Four Questions at Passover?
A. Lee says he doesn't have an answer, but he thinks it was a stupid policy. He says the youngest person at the seder table sometimes didn't know how to read. "No wonder we were in the desert for so long," he writes.
