We've added don't laugh contests to our nighttime repertoire of discussing the day's best and worst events, reading, thumb wars, and no blinking contests. Last night we were having a don't laugh contest and we were both playing for keeps. No one was gonna give. I said, in a sad, serious voice of drama, "you should think of the saddest thing you could ever think of like a sad sad little fish swimming alone and crying and another mean big fish swims up next to it and farts and laughs and swims away." Otto laughed... I won!
sidenote: I know. I KNOW, but I wanted to win.
So we had another contest and we were making the most serious, meanest, saddest, squished up faces ever and Otto said in a very very sad, serious voice, "You know what I'm thinking about?"
"I'm thinking about the saddest thing I can think of in the whole world... and it's an elephant pooping on a worm."
And then I died laughing.
He is the funniest person in the world. Bedtimes are my favorite favorite favorite. The end.
