Curry for supper

Tuesday, July 25th, 2006

On Sunday night, we were eating chicken curry for supper. Now, you’ll curry is a favourite of Reid’s but she also is particular about keeping her hands clean and so when she got some curry on her hand it needed to be cleaned. Her Daddy, up for any challenge, wiped the hand that she imperiously held up to him. Reid, though, wanted the hand to be licked clean – by her Daddy. Once he wiped it, she used her spoon to dab more curry on the hand and held it out again. There followed a Reynolds stand-off. Daddy kept wiping and Reid kept dabbing. The best moment was when Daddy exclaimed “I’m not your serviette!” (though he’ll admit to being her servant). I was a laughing so hard I had to hide under the table.
