We were at a family barbecue this afternoon, at Nana & Poppa’s house.
Babess and her Great-Uncle Bulgaria (not his real name, but lots of the kids do call him that…) were having a fine old chat, punctuated by lots of tickling. The Dad shook his head and told GUB that Babess wasn’t ticklish at all, but this was belied by the shrieks of laughter and squirming.
Taking pity on her, The Dad extended his palm and asked Babess if she wanted to play “Round and round the garden“. Yes, she did! Then, having offered himself up to be tickled, he was left flummoxed as she took off to run round and round the garden.
Sometimes she is very literal-minded.
