It's almost that time of year: my yearly late December flight to Vegas to see my family. My brother and his family have lived there for about 10 years now and that is the most convenient (re: no bad weather there) place for all of us to meet.
Our activities typically include: visiting an Xmas village to see lights and ride a train, going to one of the big hotels for a big buffet lunch and watching my niece and nephew tire themselves of opening all the presents that they get.
A story from last year. We were on our way to see the Xmas lights and my niece started to tell me a joke:
Her: Uncle Sean, knock knock.
Me: Who's there?
Her: Ambulance. [An ambulance with lights/sirens had just passed by.]
Me: Ambulance who?
Her: Someone died. [Who who...ha ha!!!! she laughed.]
A future in comedy may not be in her career path...
