    My house this morning…at the breakfast table…

    Me: (To family…wife, 6-year old son, 8-year old daughter) Hey, guys, the Yankees lost last night.
    Daughter: What was the score?
    Me: Three to two.
    Daughter: That was close. Just one run.
    Son: Were there any grand slams?
    Me: Dude, we talked about this. How many runs score on a grand slam?
    Son: Three?
    Me: No. Four. Remember?
    Son: Oh, yeah.
    Me: So, if neither team scored four runs, how could there have been any grand slams?
    Son: (Laughing) Oh, I get it…
    Me: Hey, the Yankees got two new players yesterday.
    Son: What are their names?
    Me: Austin Kearns and Lance Berkman. Do you know what Lance Berman’s nickname is? It’s “Fat Elvis.”
    Wife: (Motioning to son) Why would you tell him that?
    Son: What numbers will they wear?
    Wife: Now, that’s a good question.
    Me: I dunno, we’ll have to wait and see when they show up.
    Son: Will it be five and six?
    Me: No, those are saved for Joe DiMaggio and Joe Torre.
    Wife: “Saved?” Don’t you mean retired?
    Me: Well, DiMaggio is retired. But, they didn’t retire Torre yet. They’re saving it.
    Wife: Saving it for what? They should just retire it.
    Me: They can’t now – there’s too much bad blood.
    Wife: Com’on.
    Me: No. Really. Once the bad blood dies down, then, they’ll retire it.
    Wife: Oh, my, god. How “kindergarten” is that?

    Yup, this is how we roll in my house in the morning…how about you?

      @ Raf:
      No, she just knows that when you tell a 6-year boy something that’s supposed to be funny, he’s going to be repeating it to everyone he sees for the next week. And, not using a filter if it’s appropriate or not. ;-)
