on an ordinary evening at 7:30pm we're usually outside waiting for brian to get home from work. me, barefoot, enjoying the soft grass on my soles while i water plants and flowers. she's usually playing in water, riding her bike, performing some sort of accent or song and dance, or playing with neighbour friends. SGP and marls barkley usually join us outside for a few minutes at a time.
i don't remember why she cried but when she did she blew out and let the snot drip. like mother like daughter, i guess (i'm a little embarrassed to admit it, but i used to do this in grade 4). then she proceeded to wipe her nose with flower petals. creating rap songs in battle challenge mode with her dad converted her tears into happiness, once again.
