Day 1483 - Crazy Grandma Ichikawa Storytime
I know it has been awhile since the last Crazy Grandma Ichikawa Storytime installment, but Crazy Grandma has been keeping herself busy up in Sacramento alphabetizing her Alpha-bits cereal collection and spearheading a new organization to find homes for all of those dead cats 1-800-GOT-JUNK employees find on the television show Hoarders.
But Crazy Grandma always finds enough time to sit in front of the computer and Skype with Emma and Andrew. Of course with the way Crazy Grandma frames herself with the webcam, the kids now believe her head looks like this:
The kids usually enjoy hiding from Crazy Grandma when they are Skyping which is not very difficult when all you have to do is move a foot left or right of the camera. But this time, Emma had something she wanted to share with Crazy Grandma: a joke.
"Gaga! I want to tell you a joke," said Emma.
"Hi, Emma! It's Grandma!" said Crazy Grandma to clarify for Emma who she was talking to...I guess.
"I have a joke for you," continued Emma. "Knock-knock!"
"I'm over here! Peek-a-boot!" answered Crazy Grandma.
"No, Gaga! Knock-knock!" repeated Emma.
"Oh! Who at the door! Look! It's Emma!" said a clueless Gaga.
"Gaga! You suppose to say 'Who's there'!" explained Emma.
"I'm Grandma!" answered Grandma.
"Ugh!" uttered a frustrated Emma. "Knock-knock!"
"Knock-knock," repeated Crazy Grandma.
"I don't want to play anymore," huffed Emma as she stepped a foot to the left of the webcam.
And so ends Crazy Grandma's attempt at stand-up comedy...
