Bethism #15

Beth, to Scott: "Do you want to hear the joke about the three penguins and the bowl of guacamole?"

Scott: "Yes!"

Me: "Yes!"

Plumber fixing our radiators: "That sounds like a really good joke."

Beth: "Okay. The penguins thought the bowl of guacamole was a swimming pool and so they jumped right in!"

She has some work to do on her punch line, but the setup is priceless.

Say-ing #4

Scene: Monday night, the ice cream shop at the end of our street. Two small girls are working away at scoops of strawberry ice cream. Their parents have opted for something with a higher chocolate content.

Sarah: Mmm. This is kind of like cheese. But it's not."

Me: "How is it like cheese, Sarah?"

Sarah, after pondering: "Because cheese is kind of pink, but it's not."
