Monday Minute: Why was B afraid of D?

I'm going to try "Why did the chicken cross the road?" on them next.

I’m going to try “Why did the chicken cross the road?” on them next.

Nope, that’s not some clever trick title. It’s the beginning of a variety of jokes told around the house, ever since nobody got my “Why was 6 afraid of 7″ joke. Here’s the dinner conversation this evening:

Brigid (my sister): Hey Adam, why was B afraid of C?

Adam: I can’t do a joke right now.

Brigid: Oh, well….

Adam (finishes chewing): Okay, I’m ready now. Why was B afraid of D? Read more…

Monday Minute: Why sometimes it’s actually worth checking out the Special Features on a DVD

In between dinner and bed, the kids always have “movie time,” which is a fancy name for “stop wrestling and sit quietly on the couch while mom chases peas across the floor.” Anyway, long story short, once the movie is over (or I finish cleaning) everyone knows it’s time to get ready for bed – no muss, no fuss. Except when the special features on said movie are actually special.

The following video is a 2 minute excerpt of the epic dance party we have every time we watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with Johnny Depp. One of the special features is learning to dance like an Oompa Loompa for two of the songs (if you haven’t seen this movie, the Oompa Loompa shows throughout are reason enough). Even James, who is sometimes a little embarrassed to be seen dancing with his baby brothers and sister, can’t resist. You can see him start to get into the action at the edge of the screen, right before he breaks it down for you. CLICK HERE to be entertained.

Yes, the Monday Minute is on a Saturday. But technically, it happened on Monday…
