“Dearie, look up there at the sky! See, there is the moon!”
“Moon! Moon! Moon!”
“Shall we eat the moon?”
The little girl opens her mouth wide, and her father proceeds to grab the moon from the sky and put it into her mouth.
“Gulp it down quickly!”
“Yesterday, after you ate the moon, it got so dark outside. There were people looking for the moon, you know? Two of them came to our house and asked if we had seen the moon. I told them I knew nothing about it.”
“Now, go to bed. If you go out, you’ll glow. People will think you are the moon.”
This happens almost every day at our place, with almost the same reactions from Bubboo and almost the same dialogues by her father. It is the cutest thing I ever saw.
Andha nilava thaan naan kai la pudichen, en rasaathi kaga is just about perfect for this father-daughter duo, me thinks!
