No fooling: Theo's in the Cub Scouts
Natalie has a good sense of humor – meaning, she knows when someone is joking. She’ll often ask: “Is that a joke?” Sometimes she’ll pretend to cry, very convincingly, then surprise her parents by saying: “I’m just joking.”
Theodore likes jokes, too. Here’s the one he brought home from first grade: “Why can’t the teacher go to the Pirate Movie? Because it’s R-rated.” Why a teacher is banned from the movie is unclear, and Theo didn’t accentuate the “Arrrrr,” as a pirate would.
He asked me if I understood the joke. Yes I do, Theo. “I don’t,” he said.
