Jokes. I had forgotten that there comes a point in a young person’s life when they discover jokes. Here he is, trying them out on the cats (pre losing that first tooth!)
Unfortunately for those around them they forget the punchline/add the punchline from a different joke or begin making up their own jokes which seem to have no punchline whatsoever. They get cross with their audience when they don’t laugh or when they ‘laugh in the wrong way’. If they do discover a good joke, they will tell it again and again and again until you want to scream. I am now going through this for the FOURTH time. Knock knock jokes and chickens crossing the road now cause my face to spasm.
Bonus Boy had hysterics about one of his older brother’s jokes this week, tears rolling down his face, gasping for air – the full works. I looked up at him (he was on the Tallest One’s shoulders) and said ‘You don’t get it do you?’ He paused mid giggle, ‘No’ at which point we all fell about laughing.
His vocabulary and turn of phrase still continues to astound/embarrass/amuse us. Living with older siblings and listening to table chat means that he is developing quite a way with words
Mr Thinly Spread: Eat up BB, there are still lots of lovely things on that plate’
Bonus Boy (arms folded): Not in my opinion
There’s no arguing with that really, is there?
