A lie?

Jonah:  Mommy, where is your car?

Me:  Home.  I walked here and we are going to walk home.

Jonah:  What?  It is too hot to walk home.  

Me:  I'm just kidding!

Jonah:  What does just kidding mean?

Me:  Well, um...well, it means what I told you wasn't the truth but it was a joke.

Jonah:  So you told me a lie.  You told me a joke lie?  Mommy, I think you aren't supposed to lie.  Even a joke lie is a lie.  Are you gonna tell daddy you told me a joke lie?  He won't like that.  He doesn't like lies even when they are jokes.

Point taken, son!  Point taken!
