Everything is Funny
So the boy says to me, he says "No one is funny."
"Everyone is funny" I replied.
We went back and forth, repeating those same simple phrases for a few rounds.
"Everything is funny" I ventured.
"Nothing is funny" - he took the bait. Then we went on to vary the patterns and opposites, until we were both laughing like hyenas. So wonderful to have a toddler with a sense of humor, when it's funny. When he insists that the unfunny is hilarious it can actually be quite wearing, although I've read that the more one sees the true essence of things the more everything seems funny. Funny as Hell.
