A kid asked his mother, “Mom, can you buy me those two toys that we had seen at the store the other day?”
His mother replied, “I will buy you one of them. One is enough to keep you busy at playtime.”
Later that day, the kid started doing his homework. The mother said, “Remember that you have two activities as homework today.”
The kid replied, “I will do one of them. One is enough to keep me busy at study time.”
We took the kids to one of those restaurants where the walls are plastered with movie memorabilia. I went off to see the hostess about reserving a table. When I returned, I found my 10-year-old granddaughter staring at a poster of Superman standing in a phone booth.
She looked puzzled. "She doesn't know who Superman is?" I asked my wife.
"Worse," my wife replied. "She doesn't know what a phone booth is."
Son: "Dad, aren't you getting ready to office today?"
Dad: "I am working from home today. Get ready soon otherwise you will be late to school."
Son: "Dad, I am not going to school today."
Son: "I am studying from home today."
Some preteens were hanging out near the entrance to the local hardware store.
"Let's do something dangerous," said Billy.
"Like what?" asked Joey.
"See all those brooms hanging up in the window?" answered Billy. "I dare one of you to take one of those and run out of the store."
Freddy replied, "What would that prove, Billy?"
"How brave we are. It'll be just for fun. And we'll return it right away and apologize."
"Then why don't you do it? Just go in there and grab one of those short brooms," said Joey.
"Aw, I was just kidding, guys," replied Billy. "I'm not a whisk taker!"
