Knock knock

Since it can sometimes be awkward to tell stories involving four people without using names, I've decided to give my kids blog pseudonyms. From here on out, I shall refer to them in this way:

Larry: 6-year-old boy
Moe: 4-year-old boy
Curly: 2-year-old girl

And now, I wanted to share with you a conversation from a recent journey the four of us took in the car:

Larry: Hey, Mom. Knock knock.
Me: Who's there?
Larry: Banana.
Me: Banana who?
Larry: Knock knock.
Me: Who's there?
Larry: Banana.
Me: Banana who?
Larry: Knock knock.
Me: Who's there?
Larry: Banana.

Me: Who's there?
Larry: Orange.
Me: Orange who?
Larry: Orange you glad I didn't say banana?
Me: I sure am.
Larry: Ha, ha! That joke is SO funny!
Me: An oldie but a goodie. It never disappoints.

Me: I don't know. Why?
Larry: He was chasing a frog! Because Troodons liked to eat frogs.
Me: Oh, I get it.
Larry: And the frog was chasing the chicken! You know, the chicken that crossed the road.
Me: Right.
Moe: Knock knock.
Me: Who's there?
Moe: Banana.
Curly: Who's dere?



* Troodons were small, meat-eating dinosaurs

LOL. I can't believe the patience you have. Seriously. Even typing it all out would've tried my nerves! I was literally L'ingOL.

WOW!!! We had the same conversation a few weeks ago on a LONG 45 minute car ride to Boulder....no offense, but I am sooo glad that I am not the only sufferer of such conversations! I guess we can be thankful that "poop" wasn't in the punchline.
