Benefits of Being an Uncle

I have several great nieces and nephews that I am crazy about. Zoe, is my sister's granddaughter and I usually see her whenever I stay with my mom. Thursday after we helped serve the Thanksgiving meal, we went to my sister's house to celebrate my mother's 84th birthday.
I got to telling Zoe, knock knock jokes. She would laugh uncontrollably. She would then run over to the table where her mom and my sister were sitting and she would retell the jokes.
It got funnier and funnier. Zoe is a delightful child.
I told her a few of the old standby jokes and Zoe brought the house down when she told them.
Knock, knock. Who's there?
Boo, who?
I'm sorry I made you cry!
And my favorite:
"Do you know the difference in snot and a bowling ball?"
"You can't eat a bowling ball!"
I think she has a future in comedy. Her mother takes a dim view, but that's the beauty of being an uncle. What's she going to do?
I love America
