This morning, after I got Namine her medicine, she asked for some water. “No problem,” I said, getting a glass from the cupboard.

“Could you please put some ice in it?”

“Sure.”

I opened the freezer, and a song popped into my head (like always). I started singing, “She’s as cold as ice…”

Namine said, “Cheese isn’t as cold as ice, Daddy.”

Husband. Daddy. Programmer. Artist. I’m not an expert, I just play one in real life.
