I’ve been impatiently waiting to watch “Field of Dreams” with Michael and Minnie. It’s probably going to be next season.
However, I decided to show them the Abbot and Costello classic, “Who’s on First?”
It’s a farcical comedic bit in which two men get into a baseball argument because the players on the team have strange names, like the eponymous first baseman, Who.
The whole big flow over Minnie’s head like a fly ball.
However, a few minutes in, Michael got it. He started laughing. “The man is Who?”
I was proud of him.
However, he didn’t catch the name of the second baseman. So he kept asking me, “Who is the second baseman?”
Michael: “Who plays second base?”
Pat: “No, he plays first base.”
Michael: “I know that! Who plays second?
Pat: “No he plays first base, do you know who plays second?”
Michael: I don’t know!
Pat: No, he plays third.
Michael: Aaaasrgh! Stop it!
