We’re in Indianapolis for Passover with Sandy’s father’s family.
Sandy lets his younger brothers Martin (6) and Andrew (3) into our room to wake me up. They fling themselves bodily upon me.
Martin – Don’t be Sleeping Beauty, Sarah!....Be Cinderella.
Me – Why Cinderella?
Martin – Because she’s awake! And Sandy’s like Robin Hood!
Me – Why Robin Hood?
Martin – Because he’s awake! And he shoots bows and arrows.
Andrew – Can I touch her hair?
Andrew – I have a joke.
Me – Let’s hear it.
Andrew – SPONGEBOB BANANAPANTS HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH. (hiding his face in a pillow to contain the hilarity).
Andrew – I have another joke.
Me – OK
Andrew – Knock knock.
Me – Who’s there?
Andrew – Lion
Me – Lion who?
Andrew – LION WHO EATS PEOPLE HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH. (face in pillow again)
Same joke, new ending:
Andrew – LION WHO EATS WATER HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.
Martin – Eats water? That doesn’t even make sense.
Andrew – HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.
I am now officially awake. Happy Passover, everybody.
