Pookie has a joke that he likes to tell to me and BeAGoodMom before bed every now and then.
It’s funny because he things it’s funny and he doesn’t say many things that are really jokes. Geetle tries all the time but the punch lines normally don’t make any sense.
The other day, the 5 of us were at my sister’s new house with my sister, my mom and dad, and my best friend. Around 3pm, we decided to mosey down the street to my parents’ house (which is a full two houses away). It was almost time for Yo Gabba Gabba! which my parents always turn on for Pookie.
So, they are trying to get everybody moving toward the door. My dad asks Pookie, “Do you want to go to Papaw’s house and watch Yo Gabba Gabba?”
Pookie stunned everyone by saying, “No.”
I never thought I’d hear Pookie turn down the Gabba gang.
After a couple second pause, he said, “I want to go to Mamaw’s house,” and then he started cracking up.
His smile got even bigger when everybody started cracking up. It’s the first time I remember Pookie doing something that seemed so intentionally designed to make everybody laugh. He’s available for autographs if you are looking to get that sort of thing before he turns into a megastar.
