Angelica and I share a bedroom, and we spend a lot of time talking especially when we are getting ready for bed. Most of that time is spent laughing at/with each other, but once in a while I have to bring up topics that Angelica doesn’t want to talk about. As soon as I mention something, she’ll close her eyes, pretending that she suddenly fell asleep. It cracks me up every time, and I remind her that I know she’s really awake which usually makes her laugh too.
The other day we were in the living room. Ang was on the couch, curled up in a blanket to keep warm. I asked her to do something. Immediately, she pulled the blanket over her head because she didn’t want to hear what I was asking of her. “I know you’re there, Ang!” I said laughing.
“I’m not here,” she replied. “You can’t see me!”
