I was over at a friend’s place, laying on their couch, on the phone with my fiancee, who was sick with the cold I gave her, and she was out of town, and near tears with concerns over personal stuff.
She and I had just finished resolving her concerns when their freshly-turned-one daughter decided right then would be a good time to clamber up onto the couch, crawl onto my legs, and proceed to crawl up my body onto my chest.
Now nearly face-to-face, she grinned and let out a proud-of-herself “Huuurghh.”
The timing couldn’t have been better. My fiancee knows this sound well, and it was an instant ray of sunshine for her.
… and it made me smile.
