I Have Four Little Questions

I made them out of clay
And when they're dry and ready
Four Questions I shall play!

Q. What is Dave wearing today?
A. As it is freezing cold today (it's in the 50s right now, which is tantamount to freezing for Floridians), Dave is wearing a black polo shirt and a heavier sports jacket. Dave thinks this makes him look somewhat scholarly:

Dave is also wearing pants. Many people don't like it if you don't wear pants.

Q. How does Dave feel today?
A. Dave is excited because Hanukkah begins tonight.

Q. What are the factors affecting Dave's mood today?
A. Dave is worried about the quality of his dreidel-spinning skills. You never know when a high-stakes game of Texas Hold-'Em dreidel is going to break out.

Q. Has Dave ever actually seen a little dreidel made out of clay?
A. No, Dave has not. Dave thinks a clay dreidel would be very impractical. It would be soft and lumpy, and hard to spin. If it has been fired in a kiln, then it would probably be very breakable -- not a good quality for a children's toy. Dave prefers plastic and wooden dreidels, although he has not heard any songs written about these things.
