One day while playing ping-pong with my dad, I decided to tell him a joke—yes, that famous joke that everyone knows the answer to. This is our conversation…
me: What goes up but never comes down?
*Dad thinks for a very very very long time and very very very hard*
me: Did you hear me?
Dad: yes, I did.
*Dad thinks a little more”
Dad: This is a hard one… butuhh i think its…*pause* The… inflation of the dollar rising in value which results in… uh… the cost… and… (somewhere in his explanation I get lost)
me: Dad, the answer is ‘your age’
Dad: Oh. Well, that too, I guess.
