I chuckled numerous times
First the funnies:
Cousin: Do you want to get married?
Gooly: Yes, when I grow up, I will get married with a girl and have children. (Ahh.. a very ideal life plan)
Cousin: I am never ever getting married. It's a lot of work. And you will have to kiss your wife. So, you better find one that is not UGLY.
Papah: That's a very good advice.
Despite the darting-dagger-stares that I threw at Papah, I admit from a male's perspective, that piece of philosophy is priceless.
And that it came from an 8 year old, my bones were tickled.
Cousin: When are you going back to Bangkok?
Me: Not so soon. We're gonna be around for awhile. Isn't that good?
Gooly: No. I will miss my papah.
Gooly: You know? I will miss papah.
I know. And I am sorry.
I have said many many many things to console him. That much I can do. I can't fill up that empty space in his heart.
He starts his day by saying, "I miss papah. Is he coming back today?"
He ends his nights by asking, "When is papah coming back? I miss papah."
We are working on it, k? Give us some time.
Bah! I used to think Mothers could fix everything. Broken hearts and all...Dem.. this task is hard. Can YOU help please?
