Ask a Stupid Question Day is Coming–September 28

“Ask a Stupid Question Day is Coming–September 28” by Linda Martin Andersen

 “A Writer’s Playground”

A place to find wordplay, writing, and monthly   calendar activities for kids and those young at heart.

Today, I was riding through downtown Fayetteville, North Carolina when something unusual caught my eye.  I began asking questions…

In honor of Ask a Stupid Question Day:  28 (Last School Day of the Month), I have some rather stupid questions for you…

 1.  Have you ever seen a life-sized cow dressed in an Army Airborne uniform with a parachute over its head?  I have.

2.  Why was this cow outside the Wells Fargo Bank in Fayetteville, NC?  (To be researched)

3.  Who decorated this cow?  (To be researched)

4.  Is this cow part of a fund-raiser? (To be researched)

5.  Is this cow to be auctioned?  (To be researched)

After I Googled the key words about a cow outside Wells Fargo in Fayetteville, NC, I learned that there is a Cow Parade going on.  Local artists entered 81 painted and costumed cows for the parade in the triangle area of North Carolina.  To learn more, research this site.


 See A. Cow below:

I went back to the site and took some photographs of A. Cow, the Airborne entry.  Look for something you can photograph in your area for Stupid Question Day (September 28).  Please share a comment about your experience.  Have fun.

    Dear Linda,
    How funny! Cows are showing up everywhere. I’m glad you researched and discovered new and interesting facts

    • Hi Joan,
      Thanks for commenting! I did enjoy learning about why the cow was present and other facts. Have you noticed anything in your community recently that made you ask questions you wanted to research? I hope you have or will soon and you’ll let us know about it here.

    Wow! That’s a real conversation starter. I’ll have to look around my neck-of-the-woods and see what I can come up with.

    But I don’t think I can top an Airborne cow.


    • Jean,
      Thanks for commenting. No worry–this is not a competition. Just take a look around. Maybe you’ll see something in a whole different light and come up with a question or two you never thought of before.
