Joe: “Not quite…”
Me: “Would you like another blanket?”
Joe: “I don’t think we’ll need another blanket. Once you crawl in beside me here, we’ll be plenty warm.”
I laughed: “Well I won’t be crawling in bed beside you, so I’d better get you another blanket.”
Dot came in then to give Joe his goodnight kiss, as she does every night. She puckered up her lips, closed her eyes, and moved in for the kiss. Joe’s eyes got really big and he tried to cover his head under his blanket.
Dot: “Don’t you wanna kiss me goodnight, Joe?”
Joe: “Oh…is that you, Dot?”
Dot: “Yes, it’s me! Who else would be giving you a goodnight kiss?”
Joe: “You were going to kiss me??”
Dot: “Of course I was! What’d you think I was trying to do?”
Joe: “I was worried that you were going to bite me.”
Dot: “I’m not going to bite you! Now, do you want a goodnight kiss or not?”
Joe puckered up real quick, and Dot planted a big kiss on his lips. Joe grinned from ear to ear, and then he looked at me and puckered up again.
Joe: “Okay, who’s next…?”
