Kecak trance dancing that I saw in Bali. It might actually take longer to fall asleep after being so carefully tucked in; all the giggling goes on lasts for a good ten minutes after the tucka tucka tucka tuck in. When I am sick or tired or feeling sad I have been known to crawl up into my dad's lap and burrow my face into his shoulder and he will hold me like a baby until his legs fall asleep. Not talking, not anything. Just being held. My dad is not a complete softie though, I remember the terror he incited in my first boyfriend when we started dating at 17, and I am sure that young man hasn't forgotten either, even though that relationship ran it's course long ago. So on Father's day, I want to remind my Dad how much I cherish the fact that I am still his baby, and I won't be seeing him today, but he will be on my mind and in my heart.
I love you Daddy!
