Child development – an unbeatable sense of comedic timing

This just now happened.

We were eating dinner. My wife and I were slicing the bread I’d just made and eating it topped with slices of cheese.

At this point I should probably note that the Tomato Princess loves cheese in cube form, but actively rejects it in sliced form.

Nevertheless, she was staring at her mother, and I suggested we try offering her a bit of a cheese slice just to see what she did. So my wife held out a bit of sliced cheese.

And the Tomato Princess chose that exact moment to raise her hand from where it had been resting in her seat, and put into her mouth the shreds of coleslaw that she’d been holding there, out of sight, for at least a minute.

It seems she wasn’t interested in the cheese.

About Confanity

I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.
