I said to my kids, "Never let anyone tell you what you can and can't do! Take Beethoven for example. They told him he could not be a musician because he was deaf!"

"But he didn't listen!"

Pun-ishing rant to those who think puns aren't funny, for them to use as an example.

I wanna punt all the spunky diction pundits, that attempt to expunge the joy from punsters, right in their puny footballs. They're punks who attempt to puncture holes in our word play, finding it punitive to their, self described, punticulously crafted humor. The pungent smell of their looming punishment is in the air . Now is the punctual time to place the punctuation on this punchline.

I noticed a couple of really cute ground squirrels that have started a little community next to the soccer field at our college campus, and pointed them out. This was his reply.

DH: Oh man, they’re adorable! Can you buy one of those at a pet store? I wonder how much they’d gopher....

I replied, "I can name two; Charmin and Puffs!"

"Dad, Im thirsty!" Dad - "You're thirsty? Well Im Friday!"

"Im just going to hop in the shower quick" Dad - "Just stand still while your in there"

"Im running out to the store do you need anything?" Dad "Yes, but take the car it'll be much quicker"

Dad - "Does your face hurt" Me " No, why?" Dad " 'Cause it's killing me!"

These go on and on. He's a great guy - made my childhood a very happy one.
