Very Short Stand-Up

Adam's new favorite joke.  Let's start with the original that he heard me tell an appreciative audience of 3-5 year olds last week:

Knock knock.
Who's there?
Interrupting chicken.
Interrupting chi--
Bok bok bok!

Okay, now here's Adam's version;

Knock knock, who's there, interrupting chicken bok bok!

He's turned a knock knock joke into a one-liner.  I have a gifted kid on my hands.

Adam has also lately taken to calling me a "seener-eener."  For a few weeks, I didn't think it meant anything.  Now I know better.

"Mom, do you know what a seener-eener is?"

"No, I don't."

"A seener-eener is a little animal that walks in the woods.  It has some food.  It is pink and it is a zebra, and actually it is orange."

He's repeated this description several times since then, although the orange has taken precedence over the pink in the seener-eener's color scheme.  But a little orange-and-pink zebra that walks in the woods--that's what I am.

Thanks to Jason for the mug shot!
