Babess and The Dad arrived home a little early this evening. Babess came running into the kitchen and said, “Surprise!”
Fainjin looked at her. “You’re a princess,” he observed rather enviously.
“Yes!” said Babess. “Because it’s…” she struck a pose “Face Painting Day!”
“Awww,” said her big brother. “We don’t have Face Painting Day at school.”
Babess had a tiara on her forehead and a bracelet painted on her wrist. After dinner, she had a shower and carefully washed them off. As she wiped away the last traces with her facecloth, she beamed up at her father, and with the air of a magician opening the magic closet to reveal the hidden assistant, said, “See? It was me all the time!”
