While sitting around the table Saturday morning, Dawa said she had brought some banana bread down. To this Hughes' ears perked up and he got the biggest grin across his face. He asked, "banana bread" in an absurd tone. We all said, "yes, banana bread. Do you want to try some?" He thought that the phrase "banana bread" was absolutely hysterical and silly. He then said in his 4-year old humor, "like banana underpants".
I think that might have been his first crack at a joke. I guess to him "banana" and "bread" are two words that don't go together.
