Literal Child

Of late, our son is interested in making jokes.

He’s extremely literal and humor can be tough for him.

This morning he accosted me with yet another “joke,” sure this time that he’d come up with a winner. I’d just sent him to tame a cowlick, which triggered his idea.

He: “Why doesn’t it take a long time for a dog to comb its hair in the morning?”

Me: “I don’t know; why doesn’t it take a long time for a dog to comb its hair in the morning?”

He: “Because dogs don’t HAVE hair. They have fur!”(Wild grin.) “Get it??? Good one, right?”

He sauntered off, chuckling and muttering happily to himself, “How can they comb hair if they have fur? Good one. Good one.”

Ah, my literal child.
