On Fridays, our youngest daughter brings our grandson over for a visit. Yesterday, I came downstairs and found neutral oberver feeding the little guy in the kitchen. So, I wander over and she says, “Wanna feed him?” I replied, “Sure!”
I took the spoon, scooped up a glop of stuff that looked as if it was left over from the filming of The Exorcist, and guided it into his mouth. He gummed it a couple of times, then it started running out his mouth onto his bib.
“You need to stick it further in,” my wife said.
Ignoring the juiciest straight line she’s ever handed me, I guided another spoonful into our grandson’s mouth. The result was more of the same, only this time, he let out a wail to wake the dead – and scare our cats. Aside: It never ceases to amaze me how fast cats can move even when they slink one inch above the floor.
Anyway, neutral observer relieved me for cause. I talked to our grandson for a while, and got a kick out of him smiling again. I guess that weird old man wasn’t holding the spoon right or something. I figured I’ll have better luck teaching him how to open a pop top . . .Published in
