Here are two conversations David and I had over the weekend that ended with both of us dissolving into giggles.

David: KU is playing in this tournament at this resort called Atlantis in the Bahamas. It's so cool. There's a huge water slide and it goes under a big aquarium and there's tropical fish and mermaids.
Me: Really? Wow.
David: (in all seriousness) Well, they aren't really mermaids. People dressed up as mermaids.
Me: (pause) Are you sure they aren't real mermaids?

Me: (looking at an Instagram comment from a friend whose 5-year-old daughter is concerned that her eighteen-month-old brother is going to touch their Elf on a Shelf and laughing)
Me: So, you know how you can't touch the Elf on the Shelf or he loses his magic?
David: (in all seriousness) You mean if you're a kid?
Me: (pause to reflect on what he has just said) No. Even if you're the parent. He'll lose his magic.

Having a sense of humor and an unintentionally hilarious husband just might make the holiday season enjoyable this year.
