Random Acts of Weirdness

I said to my 13-year-old son, “Paul, you left the tortillas on the counter and the bag open.” I looked to the family room where he was sitting on the couch reading a magazine. A half-full bottle of orange Gatorade was balanced on his head. “Paul, why is there a Gatorade bottle on your head?”

He replied, “Why is there not a Gatorade bottle on your head?”

I paused. “Good point.” I put the tortillas away for that one.

Paul can pull off random acts of weirdness. So what’s the difference between funny weird and weird weird, you know, like the boy who used to flip up his eyelids in class?
