a conversation with ik

“Hey, Ik. What should I write about tonight for my daily blog post?”

“Pandas.”

“Why pandas? I know nothing about pandas!”

“Because they’re the most non-racist animal? They’re black, white, AND Asian.”

“Riiight. What else, other than that?”

“Water, because it’s important.”

“But you could die from too much of it. You know, like, drown.”

“Sigh. I mean it’s important, because you have to drink it. How about you write about your daily activities?”

“You mean ‘eating a lot’?”

Another long sigh. “That’s not a good thing.”

“What else?”

“Dolphins. Almonds. Unevenly-placed slats in furniture. Foods that have caused temporary insanity.”

“You’re making that up.”

“Twinkies and cupcakes. No really, there’s an article.”

Thanks, Ik. <3

    I never looked at pandas before from your daughter’s perspective. That is so insightful: “they’re black, white and asian”.

    Ik is really something else. I, and those whose lives she touches, are blessed. :)

    Gosh, your daughters are gems. Seriously. If I were to have children, I want daughters like them.

    Oh and I’ve thought about writing about water…except I’m not fully healed yet. Hahaha!
