Tell a Lame Joke
This morning, while Flannery was taking a bath, I found out that the child loves lame jokes. I think she must take after my dad (that's him with Flanna in the photo), who is the king of lame "dad" jokes. (I've always loved that about him. :))
In an attempt to follow through with my happiness commandment # 4 -- Have Fun, I had learned some silly knock knock jokes earlier this week. Here's the one I used this morning at bath time:
Don't cry--it's only a joke!"
Flannery thought that was comic gold. And it was really fun to be so silly. She'd practice telling me the joke, and then we'd switch roles. She loved it!
Then, I found out that she actually knew a joke. She said, "Mommy, here's a joke I just learned:" and then proceeded to say:
Car go beep beep."
I couldn't believe she actually knew a whole little joke, and that this was the first I was finding out about it. Apparently her teachers or dad beat me to the silliness punch! Which reminded me again that I often don't make time for silliness, and I need to more often!
Anyway, some of you with little kids in your life might enjoy these other knock knock jokes I've added to my repertoire this week:
Don't get so excited, it's just a joke.
Is there an owl in here?
Little old lady.
Little old lady who?
Wow! I didn't know you could yodel!
Police stop telling these awful knock, knock jokes!
How can you make time for fun this week?
