7/52: True, That

February 8, 2014

What does no child in Canada suffer from?

Eh! D.D.

That’s the pun I told tonight to my wife which, in a surprising twist, actually merited mild approval.

“What are you laughing about?” inquired Alice.

“Daddy just made a pun,” replied Sara. Her tone indicated an awareness. An awareness that this would not be the last time she would utter this response.

“Daddy, you make so many puns!”

So went the accusation of the firstborn.

“Do I make too many puns?” I had to ask.

“How could anyone make too many puns?” she asked with appropriate incredulity.

I take comfort in knowing I’ll never have to go on Maury Povich for the paternity test with this one. Eyebrows? Check. Goat laugh? Present. Corrupted sense of humor? If she were Canadian, it would be deep in her D.N.Eh.
