A more or less usual afternoon By Hannah Gerber

Today I am my childs hero.
And all because she asked for a joke and I had one.

Question: Why can't an antelope elope with a cantaloupe?
Answer: Because an antelope can't elope with a cantaloupe.

And for this I have been festooned with kisses
and she laughed so hard
she peed in her big girl underwear.
Then she asked me if I wanted a beer.
I tossed her the car keys and said,
'No, but be a peach and go to Wiggy's on the corner of Sixth
and Congress and get me a pint of Jack, would you, darling?'

Now I have about twenty minutes to myself.
I think I'll write something.
