Take for example last Sunday's exchange during lunch at my in-laws' place. While Jerry the aunts and I were candidly talking and reminiscing about our two elder sons' (Matt and Kyle) "toddler antics", Jake suddenly asked: "Was I already born that time, Pa?". "No, Jake (because there is a seven-year gap between him and Kyle, who is now 15), you were not born yet", one of my sisters-in-law replied.
We all laughed and I almost choked on my gelatin dessert when I heard him say, "Ooh... riiight... I was still dead that time."
Like I said, he seems to come up with these off-the-wall one-liners at the snap of a finger, without intending to be funny at all. Quite a skill, this boy has. Impeccable timing too.
So... I put together a little collage here of our little comedian...
*the many happy faces of Jake*
