Caitlyn is into nonsense, especially nonsense that rhymes or alliterates. She rattled off a string of it this evening while we waited for dinner to be served (Galway Bay in Ocean Shores – these are good potatoes!), then looked over to me and announced, “It’s funny the first time.”
See, she’s also into repeating things that get a laugh out of people. Giggle the first time she says something and she’ll repeat it til your head explodes. We’ve been telling her that just because something is funny the first time, it’s not funny after that.
Of course, random nonsense for no good reason (that I can see – I’m sure she had one) wasn’t funny, so I explained. “It’s funny the first time, if it’s funny. But just because it’s the first time you’ve said it, doesn’t make it funny.”
“Oh,” she says, “that’s funny.”
