Cassie got a stuffed doll for Christmas. It’s sort of a horse wearing a frilly dress with petticoats. We decided to call her Hortence. Anyway, Cassie was playing with Hortence the Horse. For some reason, Hortence “died” and Michael had to revive her. This provided some unexpected amusement…
Cassie: Daddy, Hortence died! She’s dead!”
Michael: No, sweetie. Hortence is only mostly dead, which means she’s still a little alive. You know what that means?
Cassie: Um, noooooooo…
Michael: It means we can bring her back, like this!
(Michael proceeds to give Hortence mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Hortence quickly comes back to “life.”)
Cassie (grabbing the newly revived Hortence): Mommy! Mommy! Daddy blow the horse! Daddy blow the horse!
Remember folks, if you just sprayed coffee all over your computer screen, it’s not my fault.
