I was driving my daughter home from baseball practice and the car in front of us began driving erratically. It slowed down. Then wandered from side to side. The driver was clearly distracted and we could see him looking down at the seat next to him and fiddling around with something.
My daughter said: “What’s he doing?”
I replied, “He spilled his Coke and is trying to put it out with a fire.
She thought about it for a minute then laughed long and hard. Funny what can strike your kid’s sense of humor. I take it as a sign of intelligence when word play can amuse.
