I'm not the only one who says foolish things

Camila's boss is Turkish; his name is pronounced oh-kay-EYE. Camila had a rough time with it when he first came to the hotel -- in complete innocence she asked a co-worker "What's his name, K-Y?" A minute later Okai himself showed up, asking "What's all the laughing about?"

Camila's daughter has a little friend named Christina; recently Camila met her mom, Lisa .
A few days later, she met Christina's grandma. Camila said, "So you must be Lisa's mom?" But the lady said no, her daughter's name is Brenda. When Camila looked confused, the lady explained, "Christina has two mothers."
For some reason, Camila was slow on the uptake, and thinking the lady was describing some biological miracle, blurted "How can she have two mothers?"

Here's a tip.
The 2nd story is funnier and still makes sense when you don't explain it so much. Camila's comment is like the punchline.
Short and sweet.
