The dad always love to ask his kids to look for his white hair. Usually when they're asking for this and that. It's just a ruse I know because (a) it occupies their time and (b) he can doze off when they do it. ha ha. Pandai kan. Ala ala my games when they were smaller of " pretend Im a big sleepy crocodile and try to cross me" - oh that was a great game involving a mommy who is sleepy and kids who are hyperactive - mom can continue to sleep and kids will be trampling over her happily!
Yes I digress. Anyway last night I was face down in bed reading, then one of my daughters came and said mom can i check your white hair? She came with a tweezer , hah kau! I put my book away and "surrendered" . The smaller daughter then came over to join the sister in this new and exciting search for mom's hair.
Boy did they have a field day! I nak gelak dengar their conversation- it was so funny!
Daughter no 1: OOOOH!! Look ! there's a LOT over here!
Daughter no 2: Where? Where? OH OH I see it!! Hold it still daya!! don't let it go!
Daughter no 1: You better be careful! Don't pull out the black hair!
Daughter no 2: I'm trying! (PLUCK!!) Yah! Success!
Daughter no 1: Ooog that's a long one!
Daughter no 2: Ok ok that's one done..there's more over here!
Daughter no 1: [humming jojo circus tune then suddenly-] hmm i dont know why I like that song!
Daughter no 2: [not finding this sudden change of topic weird at all]- yeah i like the song but not the story.
Daughter no 1: yah..
Daughter no 2: what put it in your head?
Daughter no 1: I heard it this morning (this was at 11 at night)..hmm try to get this hair! (Back we go to mom's poor head)
Daughter no 2: Yeah !!
