Goodnight (insert joke here)

If you have a kid, it’s going to happen to you – you’re going to have to read the same books over and over and over (repeat: infinity) again. So sometimes you just have to have a little fun with it, even with a book as sacrosanct as the classic Goodnight Moon.

We have different books on each of the three floors of our house, and right now it’s all about the board books so the boy can’t destroy them (although we do have to stop him from chewing on the spines).

And even though I am a “professional humorist,” I don’t usually mess with the readings, unless we’re reading one numerous times in a row. Get to the end, read it again. I think I came up with this version because the boy was flipping pages randomly thus messing with the intricate plot of Moon.

And, I took a little artistic license with the boy’s expression. He’s too young to realize that I was foolin’ around. In too short a period of time he’ll know all the stories by heart and be on my case if I don’t read every word as written. So I’ll make comedy hay while the oblivious sun shines.
