My husband drops Ben off at school each morning on his way to work. One morning, a song started on the radio and Matt said, “That music makes me want to dance, to jump up and down.” There was a pause and then after a strange look, Ben replied, “You do what you have to do.” Matt started laughing and said, “You are funny.” With a complete deadpan response, Ben said, “I wasn’t trying to be funny,” which made my husband laugh even more.
