Last night, as we lay in bed, K said she would kill all the angry and stupid people for me.
I asked her, “Sweetie, will you kill all the angry and stupid people for me?”
“Yes,” she said, without looking up from her binky1.
Sometimes I ask her ridiculous, impossible questions, because it seems a funny thing to do. Recently she’s taken to answering yes to whatever I ask, to try to get me to stop bothering her.
I think this is what love is like.
- “Binky” is K’s name for her smartphone. It’s a word from her childhood. It means pacifier.
