While Master Po and Mrs. Po babysit granddaughter, Ana, I start to make deep, loud horse laugh knowing it will get Ana to join me. It sound half like Santa and half like evil villain. As predicted Ana join right in. Master Po not know meaning of mediocrity and continue this childish laugh till he start to cough very hard. He no longer pretending now – he gasping for breath and showing warning signs of whooping cough (“childish coughitis” – latin for God punish man for acting like 2-year old)
Also, I must remind readers that Master Po on floor, next to Ana to better relate mature activities like forced coughing to little one. Master Po know to use good psychological techniques when playing with kids.
So Ana not worry, Mrs. Po reassure her that, “Pappy is just coughing. Don’t worry. He’ll be okay.”
To our surprise, Ana replies, “I help Pappy feel better.” – And we not know if she learns first aid from Doc Foor of Everett, her pediatrician or if she see this on TV. BUT, she picks up a plastic hammer from a tool set and promptly beats her pappy on the chest with hammer.
This not help coughing at all – and it cause Mrs. Po to roar with laughter too. Thank goodness Ana hammer on other side of chest where there is no pace maker to jar loose. Master Po try to catch breath and ask her to make leg feel better instead, so Ana switch to hammering on his knee. This not feel much better since Master Po also in need of two knee replacements. But he happy his pulse is functioning normally. He finally catch breath and stop laughing and coughing long enough to tell Ana to go make Mrs. Po’ leg better and Doc Ana obliges.
Next time Pappy not play on floor with Ana, especially if hammer is within reach.
