Wait for Punch Line
Cyndi: I don't have any idea what to post today. Do you?.
Taylor: How about a joke?
Cyndi: It's hard to think of a joke since we're all missing Merci and Those That Came Before Her.
Taylor: I never met Sam but I understand he was the clown who kept you all laughing.
Cyndi: Yes, he did, and he had a joke for every occasion.
Taylor: Even for a funeral?
Cyndi: Actually, yes. He liked to say, "I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather."
Taylor: Sam knew his grandfather? I never knew mine.
Cyndi: Not Sam's grandfather. It could be anybody's grandfather. It's a joke!
Taylor: Ha, ha, ha, ha. A good one.
Cyndi: You're supposed to wait for the punch line before you laugh.
Taylor: Oh, good, because that definitely wasn't funny.
Cyndi: Sam would say, "I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather - not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car."
Taylor: **pause** So what's the punch line?
Cyndi: That was it.
Taylor: I thought you said Sam was funny..
