Who's On First?
The title of today's post comes from an Abbott and Costello skit. My daddy introduced me to them, along with Laurel and Hardy, The Three Stooges and The Little Rascals. If you've never heard of Abbott and Costello, you've got to take 8 minutes and 3 seconds to watch their most famous guaranteed to make you laugh skit .
Christopher and I often have a dialog that I end with "okay" and just chalk it up to a "Who's on first" moment.
Case in Point...
Christopher: Mom, you know that movie Shark Tale?
Christopher: Is the fish named Oscar the voice of Will Smith?
Christopher: I knew it!
Me: Why do you ask? Did you see it recently?
Christopher: What does recently mean?
Me: Um lately. Did you see it lately?
Me: When did you see it?
Christopher: I don't know. That was a long time ago.
Here's the thing... THAT'S a "Who's on first" moment.
Check out my book The Christopher Chronicles - Age 5, Christopherims! It's chock-full of "Who's on first" moments to include, skin color inquiry,
"Mom why are all babies white when they are hatched?"
