MATT: Hey Mom, why did the chicken cross the road?
ME: To get to the other side.
MATT: (pause) Well, why did the chicken cross the road twice?
ME: (smiling, thinking maybe he finally has a funny joke for me. Pausing, I try to think up an answer. When none comes to me) I don't know. (MATT says nothing. Too much time passes.) Do you know?
ME: Why the chicken crossed the road twice?
MATT: Oh. Nope.
