And not just because I lithp either.
This morning I went to TCS for some discussion about training etc. and came home absolutely bathed in sweat. Walked into the bedroom peeling clothes off as I went and felt miserably thirsty. So I turned to that Bhablet we keep around us, and mindful of earlier happenings, asked him to please bring me some water.
He made a non committal sound and I repeated my request, more pleadingly. Then he nodded, said hmm and trotted out on his Bhablet legs. I gestured to V, indicating that he watch what happen. V shrugged and said the child couldn't bring the water, because there wasn't any outside in the bottle.
My son, folks, my son, my immensely wonderful son came back with water for his mother -- he brought me his little silver cup, kept half full of water for him to drink, at the corner of the table. I promise you, it was the best-tasting water I've ever had.
So I'm thinking, perhaps I won't send him off on that one-way trip to outer space after all.
