January drabbles - 4

“Mom, what’s revolutions?”
“It’s like when a wheel turns around.”
“No, that’s not it. Dad, what’s revolutions?”
“It’s like when part of a country goes to war.”
“That’s not it either. Grandma, what’s revolutions?”
“It’s a Beatles record.”
“What beetles? What’s a record? I don’t like insects.”

Big sister knew enough to ask what sort of revolutions.
“Like what everyone’s talking about new years?”
“New Year resolutions?” asked Big Sister.
Little Brother said “Yeah.”

“Resolutions, they’re like promises to yourself,” said Mom.
“Like things you really want to do,” said Dad.
And Grandma sang, “She loves you yeah, yeah, yeah.”
