Consider the following:
My oldest son was reading some jokes out of the comics and this interchange happened:
My son: "Who fixes an astronaut's car?"
Me: "I don't know."
My son: "A quantum mechanic."
Me: "Hah, that's funny. Do you know what a quantum mechanic is?"
My son: "Uh, don't they build the rockets?"
At this point, my wife, who has a really bad cold and isn't feeling well at all, starting laughing and insisted that I blog this hilarious interchange.
My son and I just looked at her, but I love my wife, so I obliged.
Hmmm ... so, yes, it's funny, but not that funny -- at least not to me. Or is it? Did I just not get it? Or is this a clear example that when one doesn't feel well, one appreciates even modestly humorous things much more?
The first moments of silence.
