D: Why are sticks called sticks?
Me: (shrugging) What do you think they should be called?
D: I don't know. But tape is 'sticky,' and sticks aren't.
Me: (laughing) That's true! I hadn't thought about that. Oh - maybe because unless they've been pulled off, sticks are usually sticking to a tree . . .
D: (nodding like that totally makes sense) Oh, yeah!
