The Obvious

I was telling Lisa to start her work and she questioned me with, "Why should I do it?"

My response? No long intellectual answer about the joys of learning and succeeding. No long diatribe about her responsibility as a student. No deep answer about growing. At this point it was useless.

My answer was, "Because I'm your teacher and I told you to do it."

Sometimes the simple answers are the best.
