The other night, I was sitting on the bed and using a mini massager to massage my aching hamstrings. Talia Ann came into the room, saw what I was doing and said, “Daddy, massage for me.” She always asked her grandma to massage her back for her.
She didn’t ask correctly. So, I looked at her, keeping quiet. She pondered for a short while and asked again, “Daddy, massage for me…PLEASE!”
Of course I was glad to. Before I could say “Ok”, she was already flat on her tummy. I move the mini 3 legged massager from her shoulder, down her back, onto her little butt, down her legs and did a little foot reflexology before moving it up the body again.
After a few rounds up and down the body, I said “Daddy’s turn”.
Talia said, “Ok, I massage for you.” She paused and said, “I do very good one ok. You lay down first”
She tried her best moving the mini massager around my shoulder and down my back. However, when it reaches my butt, she had to shift her whole body so that she can reach my aching hamstrings. Then she shifted again to do the foot reflexology. For each stroke from shoulder to toes, she has to shift 3 times. After a few strokes, she sighed and said “Daddy, why your body so looooooooong one.”
It was just a simple comment, but the way she said it triggered my funny bone and I laughed so hard as if the laughing spirit is all over me. She kept asking “what happened daddy?” How do I explain to her? Nay, daddy has no choice but to tickle her and both of us rolled around having a wonderful time laughing and tickling each other. You can’t plan for such wonderful moments in life.
