Yesterday, as I drove my six-year-old son home from school, he asked me a question.
"What's the opposite of maybe?"
I thought hard for a minute and answered, "I don't think 'maybe' has an opposite. It's kind of half-way between 'yes' and 'no'."
"I think the opposite of maybe is 'maybe not'," he replied.
Maybe my son is smarter than I am ...
