So I know that no one will ever find this funny, but I do because it’s so unfunny, and I want to write it down so that I don’t forget all his little moments.
The boy is a keen fan of jokes, I don’t think remotely for one minute he gets them, or understands them. He loves to make his own jokes up and he will say the same one over and over for weeks. I have to laugh….everytime….
On the way home from school today:
Mummy I’ve got a joke for you
Ok, thats great what is it? (Thinking oh no not again!)
What do you call a pork with no eyes?
I don’t know? What do you call a pork with no eyes?
Jurassic Pork! (Cue lots of fake laughter from me, and a whole lot of internal dialogue for myself)
Do I tell him that it’s Jurassic Park not Jurassic Pork? He hasn’t even seen the movie so how would he understand. I think for a moment, about explaining that its a park with dinosaurs, but will this just scare him?
He tells me that he’s told his teacher…oh great now his teacher has had to fake laugh as well. I try to think about where he’s got this idea for a joke from………a pork with no eyes………..I just don’t get it, I guess I probably never will. I love that boy so much!
