this morning as I was getting dressed and my daughter was making life difficult, as she does every morning when it is time to get ready for school,
she looked at me in my suit and tie (a rarity for me but I am meeting clients today) and she picked up this toy she has that is like the magic 8 ball
of yore. You ask a question and spin the dial and it either confirms or rejects your inquiry.
anyway, my daughter, who has been getting yelled at by my wife, by me and by the nanny, stops everything, picks up this toy and says "is my daddy
really handsome?" she then spins the dial and I hear her say "no your wrong. he is really handsome. look" then she held the toy up in my
direction and then she said "daddy, this toy is broken, it doesn't think you're handsome and you are daddy. really handsome."
I walked over to her and gave her a big hug and told her I love her and I love how she is defending my looks to a 3 cent toy and she says "I love you
too daddy. can I get a donut on the way to school now?"
and then I smiled.
