5 Year Old Humor

I should clarify that this is not a joke that I have been hoarding for five years*, but rather a joke told to me by a five year old kid who has learned about synonyms and puns but does not understand them.

Q. Did you hear about the fuzzy who lost his left side?
A. He's OK now! [cue riotous laughter] Get it? Get it?**

The original telling of this joke occurred somewhere on I-35, while mom and I were taking my brother back to college station. When we finally got the joke, I very nearly fell out of my seat laughing, but I was physically restrained by my seat belt, so I settled for laughing until I cried.


*Although I do have a tendency to repeat jokes until I get the response I want. [back]
**Translated into adult-speak, the punch line of this joke is actually "He's all right now." [back]

And We're Back

I was going to make regular updates over the holidays.
I was going to update at least once a week in 2009.
I was going to write an interesting re-cap of all the things I've done in the past year, especially the things that happened since my last post, such as narrowly avoiding be squished by a tree and teaming up with Mom Lady* to build a gallon-sized graham cracker cathedral.
Unfortunately, I've been stricken with a horrible case of MaƱana Fever ** So, instead of doing any of that, I'm going to make an observation about the weather: if this cold-one-day-hot-the-next pattern we've had for the last month or so keeps up, we are going to have some interesting storms this Spring.

That is all.
