“Out of all things I have passed on to my daughter, my sense of humor seems to shine the brightest.
My daughter LOVES to play with Play-Doh. She mostly makes messes with it. Until the fateful day she decided to become a body artist.
One day, she was in the living room playing with her Play-Doh and I was in the bathroom shaving. After a minute or two, I heard her running towards the bathroom — yelling. From the other side of the bathroom door I heard, ‘DADDY! DADDY! Guess what I made!? You have them!’
Sheer panic. ‘Dear God, what did she make?’ Suddenly, she swung the door open, and with a huge smile on her face she held up her work of art. ‘Look! I made boobies!!!’ And she did. Anatomically correct and all.
I start to laugh, then stop dead.
