Questions

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.

  1. “Binky” is K’s name for her smartphone. It’s a word from her childhood. It means pacifier.
