Wait, what?

I picked up Master J after school today and we started talking about his day. I asked him how it was (Good!), how he did on his spelling and vocab tests (Great!), how was his lunch (Okay, it wasn't the right one). Anyway, the kids have a six day rotation schedule of music, art, p.e. and library and today was a p.e. day. Annnnddd....

Me: So what did you guys do in p.e. today?

MJ: We played football.

Me: Cool. Have you done that before?

MJ: No. Today we learned how to play it. We learned how to punt, how to throw the ball and how to hike it.

Me: Did everyone get to do everything?

MJ: Yep. I'm not very good at throwing the ball. It's aerodynamic but it's hard to throw. Some kids already knew how but I've never thrown one before (oh my goodness, what kind of parent am I?)

Me: Oh, that's too bad. But at least you got to do it. So did you punt it?

MJ: Yeah and I did okay with punting it.

Me: Uh-huh. And did you get to hike it?

MJ: Yeah. I'm not a very good hiker.

Me: Why's that?

MJ: Because I get out of breath too easily going uphill.

Me: Really? Why would...wait, what?

MJ: Ahahahahhahaha!

Me: For the love think you're pretty funny don't you?

MJ: Yeah! I'm the punniest kid on the team! Hahahahahahaha!

Me: I'll bet you are...

Sounds like you have a pretty intelligent kid there.

I agree and I suspect he has surpassed me with his wit. You two should go on stage, I think Vaudeville is coming back. I'll take a front row seat please:-)
