I wrote the following a while ago…
I’m currently on the train. There’s nothing quite so satisfying as listening to a very happy child grinding her mother’s brain into a fine paste by telling a constant high pitched stream of near identical jokes and demanding not only rapt attention, but also genuine joy.
All of the jokes are along the lines of “why did the chicken cross the road?”
“Why did the chicken cross the road? Because he was walking quite quickly and he wanted to see his friend.”
“Why did the chicken cross the road? Because he was nice.”
“Why did the chicken cross the road? He was called Christopher.”
“Why did the chicken cross the road? It was a dog”
The mother’s protestations of,”Please no more,” “Alright that’s enough now” and “Don’t you know any others?” are falling on merciless ears…
The girl is not about to give up for any reason – even a train crash.
I am crying through laughing so much… I hope I’m not encouraging this… (Although I know I absolutely am).
There may be nothing for it but to ram my coat into my mouth.
Have a lovely day x
