CherkyB, Parent Extraordinaire 2

MaxieC: "Daddy, what's that chirping I hear? Do you know?"

Me, CherkyB: "That's crickets. It's a whole bunch of crickets outside all chirping at once, which is why it sounds like a constant chirp."

MaxieC: "Are they chirping for food?"

Me, CherkyB: "They're chirping to find girlfriends."

MaxieC: "Why?"

Me, CherkyB: "Well, outside there aren't a whole lot of crickets all right next to each other. So when the boys want girlfriends, they chirp, and then the girl crickets follow the sound to find the boys."

MaxieC: "Oh. We're boys."

Me, CherkyB: "Yes. But we don't go outside at night and chirp to find girlfriends."

MaxieC: "What do we do?"

Me, CherkyB: "Well, we get jobs that pay a lot of money. Girls can smell money, and if you have a lot of it, they'll want to be your girlfriend."

MaxieC: "Oh, like if they smell the money you throw down on the ground in front of them, then they'll be your girlfriend?"

Me, CherkyB: "Yeah. Pretty much."
