Wife: Those trees in the front yard, do you know why their roots are above the ground?
Husband: No, but I'm sure you're gonna tell me.
Wife: It's because they are getting so much water. Usually trees are supposed to grow their roots deep in the ground, so that they can find the water. When we keep over-watering them, they don't feel they need to reach down so far, and that's why they are weak and prone to falling over and get other diseases, because they spend their lives with all the water at the surface.
Husband: So, you're saying our trees are lazy.
Son: All that explanation and THAT was what you got out of it?
