Life and Laughter

Someone manages to get stranded on the roof of the neighbor's shed. Dave is working late, so I wind up enlisting the help of  our neighbor and his extension ladder to get the someone down.

Dinner conversation revolves around leeches and their many uses throughout the ages.

Tim recalls an elementary science textbook that failed to inspire him. "There was like one random fact about science," he shared. "And then this whole section about manners."

"Would you like a piece of gum; it's sugar-free," Tim recalled a girl asking a boy.

"No, thank you," the boy apparently replied. "It's healthy, but we shouldn't chew gum in the library."

Was it Tim's deadpan delivery or perfect recall that made this unbelievably funny to me?
