Harry was asking "what does the bear say" again tonight while we were both on the sofa. The answer, of course, is "grrrrrrrr," although since we were so close and I answered so quickly and rather forcefully, I actually made Harry jump. At first, he seemed quite unsure of himself, but I started to laugh and he ask the question again. Almost before he finished asking the question I did the same thing and again he jumped, but laughed a little faster. He asked the question several more times, somehow being a little scared each time even though he pretty much knew and expected what was coming. Harry mother noted that it must be that odd human fascination with things like scary movies and having fun scaring oneself.
