There’s that common saying of “There’s no such thing as a stupid question.” While, at first, it takes some time to understand. Inside the classroom, asking questions is the best way to gain knowledge. At work, asking questions is the best way to understand how to perform your duties. At home, asking questions is the best way to make sure the family is doing fine.
But when it’s your best friend asking a question, they can honestly ask some really stupid questions.
My mind raced back and forth, doing a mental lap, thinking about Sasha’s question. No answer came to mind, so I shrugged.
The both of us remained silent. Sasha was clearly waiting for my next answer, but I was still replaying the mental recording of what she had last asked me. Perhaps I heard it wrong, but my brain and ears heard every syllable that came out her mouth.
“Hold on,” I said, as I pushed myself up from the grass. I replied the words in my head one last time before continuing, “Did you just ask if I dream about being a fucking toaster?”
Sasha shot up next to me, frantic to explain herself, “Wait, wait, hold on.”
“A fucking toaster?!”
