Elena managed to get the whole family laughing tonight. To explain, allow me to recap:
Today at lunch, we had baked potatoes. I was putting the butter and cheese on them, then Pedro salted and peppered them. Right after he started peppering the last one, Elena came in saying, "I don't want pepper." She looked at the potato, then up at Pedro with a mad look on her face. He said, "That's not pepper. It's black salt." (confused look) "You've never had black salt?? It's from Indonesia."
Elena was retelling this story to Kyle at dinner. She was laughing as she told him about the black salt. Then, suddenly she started laughing really hard as she said, "You told a black joke! Get it??? A black joke!" Everyone at the table started laughing.
The funny thing, of course, is that none of the kids actually "got it".
