My jokes made the old ones laugh, bodies shaking, tears flowing. “He’s so funny.” They cooked my favourite dishes, hugged me and made me feel loved.
When kids are unreasonable, it’s “Don’t be a fool”; sensible, “Hmm”; noisy, I glare or snarl; and, when they try jokes like mine, a snort, “Try again.”
“Cheat.” A kid’s shout echoes year after year.
