The Fifth Question

Part of the Passover seder (the service conducted in the home on the first and second nights of the Jewish holiday Passover, or Pesach) involves the youngest member present asking The Four Questions. The four questions ask about why this night is different than all other nights. The questions and answers are part of the seder.

At the conclusion of the asking and answering of the questions at my friends' seder, their 3-year-old daughter raised her hand, asking, "Can I ask a fifth question?" All eyes turned toward her as her parents, somewhat surprised, assured her that she was welcome to ask another question. She proceeded, posing the question, "Is it okay for people to go potty now?"
