I remember a day
You were about ten
When you came home from school with a script
Your teacher said to read aloud
"Something about baseball" you said.
I was delighted to see it was "Who's on First"
We read it out loud together.
And about halfway through
A light began to shine in your eyes
As you realized this was funny
Before we were done
You were laughing so hard
You could barely get the words out.
And I will never forget how much fun it was.
Watching my little boy
Get a seventy year old joke
Like it was being told
For the first time.
