MIJA: Freeze Tag Hurts

April 5, 2010

Mija wanted to play hide-n-seek.

I wanted to play freeze tag.

We did rock-paper-scissors for it.  One — two — three, she made a little fist…I made scissors and poked her in her eyes with them…I won!  Freeze tag it was!

“I’ll be it first,” I said.

She was crying.

“I didn’t poke you that hard.  Shut the fvck up and run.”

She ran…I chased…and chased…and chased.

I finally tagged her as she ran over some railroad tracks as a train was approaching.

She froze.

“Daddy there’s a train coming.  Unfreeze me!”

“What’s the secret password?”



“Pretty please?!”

“Hell no.”

“It’s getting closer!  It must be going 80 miles an hour!”

“Damn!” I yanked her out of the way.

“I love you, daddy!”

SLAM!  The train coming from the opposite direction hit her at 81 mph.

“I love you, too, mija.”


P.S. I seriously, seriously love,  love,  LOVE my mija.
