☆  joke  冗談を言う


Today’s word can be a verb or a noun. As a noun, a joke is something that is said or done that makes you laugh, for example a funny story. As a verb, if you joke, you tell funny stories or say amusing things. For example, “I really like where I work, it’s so relaxed and everyone is always joking and laughing.”

One thing I remember from when I was a kid was that my dad was always joking and telling funny stories at dinner time. When I was little, I tried to copy him, and while we ate dinner, I was always joking about something that had happened to me that day. I would make up a big story about it and try to make everyone laugh. Of course, usually my family just groaned at my terrible jokes!
