The Littlest Comedian

April 21st, 2010  |  by  |  Published in Media

It will come as no surprise to many of you that I have a 6-year-old’s sense of humor. Pratfalls, fart jokes, goofy puns—all are pretty much guaranteed to get me giggling, if not blasting the room with my laughter.

Which is why it’s pretty damn nice having someone around who laughs at the same things I do. That is, little 16-month-old Sasha. For instance: If I put something on my head that shouldn’t be there—a block, a cup, a diaper—it’s sure to provoke a fit of silliness. But it’s not just me entertaining her. Sasha’s entirely happy to put things on her own head and then collapse into laughter when they fall off. A few rounds of this, plus a bit of tickling, and she’s in hysterics.

So, you can imagine how delighted I am that Sasha has learned a new phrase: “Baba feng pi!” In English, that’s “Daddy farted!” Of course, she doesn’t say it just right yet, and probably has no idea why it’s so hilarious, but we’re practicing and practicing, every single day. Next stop: the Three Stooges.
