The Finnish Tickle

Hey, Finnish people can be funny...

Sami stopped by today for a full-on tickle attack, followed by some soccer lessons in the garden. David loves his Godfather and the Godfather loves teaching David new and 'interesting' things.

For a while, David would run around the house trying to stick a computer mouse into the cat. He also taught David how to thoroughly irritate his older brother by calling him Loco Chico, something that Peter really hates. Thanks, Chorizo.

Peter spent the night at Dalia's, which meant that David spent the morning moping around, looking for something else to hit. He zeroed in on Gizma and spent the next five minutes trying to step on her tail. It made me rethink whether his Ladder Talk's frequent worst moment of 'when Gizma scratch me' isn't really a daily occurrence.

Peter's homecoming wasn´t until the afternoon and David chose to display his brotherly affection with a swift blow to Peter's head with a plastic sword. Three hours later when Peter stopped crying, he told David 'you broke my heart into pieces like a puzzle'. David did not appreciate the poetic simile nor did he really seem to give a shit about Peter's broken heart or head. He did get excited about the puzzle and kept asking where that was.

I realized that puzzles, like Finnish people, can be funny. I laughed, which made Peter mad, which made Angie tell me to be nice, which made me laugh harder, which made Peter furious, which made David giggle, which made me laugh even harder, which made Angie demand that I apologize. Sorry, Loco Chico.
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When I slept by Dalia.
David: When Dalia come again mit Brian.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When I thought by going up nobody was going with me but then Sebastian come up and scared me because I thought he was a bird.
David: When Gizma scratch me.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To go to the city and look to a movie.
David: When Dalia come again and the carousel.
