Silly Monkey Stories #63 - Fossils


Canada 03/Sep/2009 – Florencia (5)

I’ve mentioned –exactly two weeks ago– the things that Florencia comes up with (or maybe not) just in order to steal a few minutes in bed with us every night. Sometimes it’s that she’s dreaming of wolves (strange, Santi used the same line 10 years ago!), sometimes it’s those voices in her head or sometimes she thinks that somebody is going to die. She’s very good at that, and she make such sad puppy faces that it’s really hard for me to keep a straight face and send her back packing.

But I was completely overwhelmed the other day. She dropped in and very casually asked if she could stay in bed with me because ‘her fossils were hurting’. I had to find out more, of course:

- What is it that it’s hurting????!!!
- The fossils…
- And where’s that?
- Here, inside my legs…
- Ah, but those are your bones!
- And what are bones? They’re fossils!!!

She must have been watching the Discovery Channel. I gave up to such an overwhelming display of logic and made some room for her.

Oh, yes, I’m such a strict father… Nobody messes with me!

Argentina 03/Sep/2009 – Florencia (5)

He mencionado –hace exactamente dos semanas– las cosas que inventa (o tal vez no) Florencia con tal de ‘garronear’ unos minutitos en la cama de sus padres cada noche. Si no sueña con lobos (curioso, lo mismo decía Santi 10 años atrás!), tiene voces en su cabeza o piensa en que alguien se va a morir. Es muy hábil, y pone unas caras que son para morirse, así que me cuesta mucho trabajo conservar la cara de piedra cuando la escucho y la tengo que mandar de nuevo a su cama.

Pero el otro día me superó. Se apersonó en mi habitación y me dijo muy suelta de cuerpo que si se podía acostar conmigo porque ‘le dolían los fósiles’. Por supuesto, tuve que indagar más:

- Que te duele qué????!!!
- Los fósiles…
- Y dónde es eso?
- Aquí, adentro de mis piernas…
- Ah, pero esos son tus huesos!
- Y qué son los huesos? Son fósiles!!!

Se ve que habrá estado mirando el Discovery Channel. Me rendí ante tan abrumadora lógica y le hice un lugarcito.

No, si soy un padre firme… A mí naides me maneja!
