Today I came into the bedroom to play with Lela, and yet again she was wearing her math/science glasses, doing mathy/sciency things.
She is always doing mathy/sciency things. It seems like that’s all she’s into nowadays.
We talked about science and math and life as it pertains to sciency and mathy things.
As I was about to leave, she looked at me, smiled, and said “dad, I want to tell you a joke.”
Me: “Ok honey, go ahead.”
Lela: “Why did Snooki do her math homework on the beach?”
Me: “I don’t know. Because she was drunk?”
Lela: “No. Because she was trying to find a tan gent.”
Me: blank stare
Lela: “It’s funny because…”
Me: “No, I get it. A tangent is a math thing. I teach math.”
Lela: “…and a tan gent, in terms of Snooki, is…”
Me: “No that’s fine, I understand that too. I watched every episode of the Jersey Shore.”
