A conversation with M-: Dying is easy, comedy is hard

Here's a little conversation I had with my 3-year-old daughter M-, who was drinking some juice while I sat here working my precious day away like a chump:

M- (with a serious face): Remember that time that I laughed and my juice came out of my nose??

Me: Yeah-- owie!

M- (confused): What?

Me: I said, "Owie!"

M- (incredulous): No... that's not owie, that's FUNNY. It came out of my nose!!

You may enjoy my previous M- conversations, (6YO son) D- conversations, and (wife) J- conversations.

A great deal extended through May - Magazine subscriptions on Amazon, 2 Years for the (deeply discounted) Price of 1! We've already ordered 3 different women's magazines-- guess who those are for??

* Of course, I receive a percentage of whatever you order, but that doesn't mean this isn't a tremendous value, right?

The subtle humorous nuances of citrus-stung mucus membranes is apparently wasted on me versus her preferred 6-year-old one-man audience.

Duh, don't you know humor? She suffers for her art.

Remember than time you drove a roofing nail through your palm? What a side-splitter!

Methinks Trooper Thorn is a John Wayne fan. The Quiet Man is my all-time favorite movie EVER!!!

Dan, you daughter has a wickedly dry sense of humor!

Did she say it hurt at the time? If not, it is funny when laughter stops a person from drinking juice or milk. Generally, it only happens once. Good she laughs & was not embarrassed.

Did YOU laugh when it happened? Maybe it was funny and it just took her this long to realize.

I guess it all depends on how much came out and how fast it came out. Apparently she was referring to the funny kind! :-)
