Resistance Is Futile

"Daddy, can I be sick again next week?"

"Sweetie, why do you want to be sick again?"

"So you can stay home from work and play with me again."


  1. Ah, Children... Glad I have none of my own, but happy to see how much other people enjoy them. It was soooo cute!!
    Where do you get all this ideas? Maybe my muse would come back from vacation.

  2. Usual Stuff, actually this was part of a real conversation I had with my daughter today (she was sick so I stayed home to look after her).

  3. That is the stuff that melts your heart. Damn.

    How come "sickness" can make you feel so well?

    Have a good weekend, good sir.

  4. Hi GT, yeah, I guess a variation of schadenfreude. A good weekend to you, as well.

  5. I'm glad something like that can remind us we're human.

  6. Glenn, awww indeed! Sometimes she just sort of looks at me, gets a sheepish grin on her face, and gives me a hug. There's no defense for that!

    Turner, yes indeed!

  7. Usual Stuff, yes she only had a fever for a couple of days and is fine now, thanks.
