2016 A-Z Blogging Challenge – 12 April. J is for Joke.


“Joke. It’s a  joke, Larry. C’mon, she likes jokes.”

“It was old 50 years ago. And it wasn’t funny then.”

I try and hide a smile. Not very successfully. Our daughter is in her cot, kicking her feet. I tickle her solid little tummy, full of milk, her babygro warm and soft against my hand. She giggles, moving her chubby arms up and down as she lies on her back.

“Jessie would think it’s funny.”

Larry snorts. “She’s four months old, she wouldn’t know a joke if it bit her.”

“Let’s try it. I say  My dog’s got no nose. You say How does he smell? I say ….”

  1. Groan. Larry was right, that joke was old 50 years ago. šŸ˜‰

    Wonderful flash pieces – I’ve bookmarked your site so I don’t lose it as I work my way down the list. I really want to see what else you come up with for the month.


    • Hi Carol, glad you liked it. Thanks for visiting. Some of the flash pieces are light and fluffy, some dark and twisty. I’ll be back to visit you later today. Hope your challenge is going well this month šŸ˜€


  2. This one was really cute, I can totally imagine a young couple having this conversation as they watch their new baby in her cot šŸ™‚
