Ask a Silly Question

The unintentionally funny things that The Boy Child says are like the #65 bus.
You wait for ages and then two come along at the same time.
Following on his recent comment about slices of mango, I give you a conversation about the British middle distance runner, double gold Olympian Mo Farah
You said, “Mo Farah is in the Commonwealth Games. 
 We saw it on Newsround; he said, “See you in Glasgow!”  
Mummy asked, “Which distance will he be running?”
You said, “Um. Maybe from the start to the finish?”
Ask a silly question.

  1. Smart boy!

    I can remember my Grandma asking my brother what he wanted for Christmas and he answered “Ask a silly question!” We had to explain to her that it was the title of a book


  2. A teacher in my son's class asked a child “Have you done your maths yet?”
    “No Miss,” he replied.
    “what do you mean, No MIss?” she shrieked. There was a long pause during which I was curling up with embarrassment in the art corner
    ” Um, I mean no, Miss” he said. She went ballistic and sent him to the headmaster. The kid had no idea what he had done wrong as he was at the age when they speak the literal truth – year 2 and 3 – OH just like TBC! Head master fortunately grilled everyone for information before dealing gently with the child and praising him for telling the truth while suggesting that he could have thought a little more first
