Maybe: A Historical Account

This is a historical account of the illusive word known as "Maybe." Maybe I will tell you about it, and maybe this is dedicated to Enya Sanders. Maybe I don't know O.O


2. The Maybe

I. Introduction:

     Perhaps you have wondered why people often say "A maybe is a baby until it grows up and says 'yes." And after a brief search on the Internet you couldn't find any answers to its origin. Upon stumbling across one of the Maybes in physical form, I knew I had to take the opportunity to ask this 'maybe' about its past. Thus, why I decided to share with you the "History of a Maybe" that all may certainly know its origin and struggles. And perhaps after reading, you will better be able to work with the world around you and create a positive attitude worldwide.

     The history of a maybe is very like our own history as humans. Though in order to understand this, we must first speak briefly about "Yes" and "No". These two words are often described as positive and negative, but nonetheless they are equal in power and the only positivity or negativity originates from the question itself. While we speak roughly and briefly about these two words it is not to mean that their history is any less complicated as a Maybe's is; but it certainly is definite in manner, and only so much can ever be written on them.

     As we all have experienced in the past, 'No' is the answer you get when you ask your parents any question; and as we all probably experienced 'Yes' is the answer you get from your friends even if it does not result in positive results. Often times, this causes an imbalance between the two words, and thus the two words are always at odds with each other. This is why the case of having a Maybe (especially in physical form) is so hard to come across.


II. The Maybe as a Baby:

     Every now and then a Maybe will result in the DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid) sharing and coding of both a Yes and a No who have somehow and in someway looked past the differences they had between the other. While it is still undetermined how this happens, it is certainly a miracle and sight to behold a lovely couple such as that.

     In fact, if a Yes and a No do happen to marry they will often be shunned from their families forever. Though together, they create something almost too good to be true... a Maybe.

     Upon raising a Maybe it will often struggle between answers. For instance if you were to ask a Maybe a simple yes and no question at the moment it was born, it would go repetitively back and forth from 'yes' and 'no' until it stumbled and randomly landed on one. This is very common in baby Maybes and so asking questions to this maybe is not encouraged as it can cause stress to the baby and perhaps neurological damage as well (usually seen later in life). This is a case referred to as Maybe Baby Syndrome.

     Additionally, twin Maybes are exceedingly rare but nonetheless worth mentioning as this is a historical account of Maybes. If in the event twin Maybes were born one will eventually grow up into a 'Yes' and the other a 'No'.

     Why does this happen though? Wouldn't they both grow up to be Maybes? Researchers have yet to explain this phenomena but they track it back to the Maybe Baby Syndrome where when conversing with each other, one Maybe will constantly say 'Yes' and the other Maybe will constantly say 'No'. "They are like counterparts in this case," says Professor Wesley Dugan. This in itself remains unproven but more studies are being done to further prove this.

     Only five cases worldwide have ever been reported where triplet Maybes will be born. This is quite a sad case as the Maybes always have died within the first week of being born. Quadruplets have never been reported. After making its way through its earlier years as a baby, the Maybe now faces another challenge as a child and later as an adolescent.



III. Childhood and Adolescent years of a Maybe:

     Throughout the early childhood years a Maybe will now have developed its speech to say "Maybe". This makes it quite drastic for the parents (Yes and No) to raise as they do not know if they want anything or not. If you are a parent of a Maybe please follow this link to get your Maybe Care Guide today <>. Many support centers are there for you if you are in this situation and always speak to your family doctor about any issues you have.

     After struggling with the parents the Maybe is then sent off to school, but this itself is not an easy task for the teachers and the Maybe. When taking tests or quizzes the Maybe, being undecided, will never be able to pass through a normal school, and so a Maybe must attend a private school specifically for taking care of Maybes and teaching them.

     Though, it is hard and bitter work, the Maybe will always grow up and say 'Yes' from this school. There is no evidence proving why this is a fact, but even if they are taught to say 'no', instincts or otherwise will always have the Maybe learn how to say "yes".

     After learning how to say "Yes" now the Maybe is ready to attend a normal school where he or she may go and meet plenty of friends. Usually, this will be "Yes" friends but as a Maybe can teeter totter between the two a little, they will usually account for 25% "no" friends.

     Even with this being a fact, do not be fooled. Being abnormally different in the world of words always causes conflict between one another. Now the Maybe is often picked on for begin too tall (or too long so to speak), for his age as he is two to three letters longer than everyone else in class. This is normal, but introducing Maybes to a school is taken with extreme care and often times teachers will be sure to look after the Maybe until the others (Yes's and No's) are used to the Maybe.

     Continuing throughout high school years the Maybe will eventually grow up and usually results as being head of the class graduating with a GPA of 3.8 or higher. If the Maybe decides to further its studies at a university, this is his or her choice and will do so accordingly. With little or no worries the Maybe is now home free.



IV. Years after Adolescence:

     Though like any other word, it does fall in love with another. While the "love of words" is still a mystery, the Maybe to whom I'm interviewing is certain that it is love as we experience as humans. By this time, the Maybe has certainly grown up and has the ability to say "Yes", but now it faces a new challenge... it needs to learn how to say "I do."

     After being ridiculed by its former class of Yes's and No's ironically, the Maybe usually searches for a "Yes" or "No" partner to spend the rest of its life with. Marriage for a Maybe is often difficult because of it instinct to waver on "Yes" and "No" and is often stuck in a rut as to whether or not it is indeed the right partner. However, due to this, divorce rates for those married to a Maybe are very low and not even breaking the five percent mark.

     Finally when the Maybe finds a suitable partner, they marry like any other word does at the local community known as the Word of Fame. The Word of Fame is a place centralized around large cities specifically for allowing words to marry. At the marriage the Maybe and it's spouse both pronounce the words "I do" and move on to another chapter in their life...

     Parenthood is often the next task to accomplish in a Maybe's life. One day it may come to care for its own children someday. Though due to every allele in the Maybe's Punnet Square being submissive to all others, whatever the Maybe's spouse is will be the word their children someday come up to grow. For example, if the Maybe marries a No their offspring will all be No's.

      In spite of this, raising children for the Maybe tends to be an easy task as it has gone through so much already. Thus, a Maybe will often find a successful career as running an orphanage (with a good name too!).

     Now passing through life, the Maybe gains much more knowledge throughout its years and as it was born speaking a word that many refrain from saying, it also learns how to speak other words easily. This is a blessing that many words do not have. As a "Yes" or "No" word usually go throughout their life only speaking 'yes' and 'no' respectively. Examples of other words that learn to speak beyond their first natural tongue would be Knowledge and Wisdom.

     As the Maybe approaches its death, it has often accumulated much much wealth in its years. Wavering between the two words of yes and no, the Maybe now understands the concept of right and wrong to its full extent. And lying on its deathbed hours before it dies, it often says a traditional sentence as started by the very first Maybe of the world, "A maybe is a baby until it grows up and says yes... but a Maybe I always will be."
