With warm sunshine beaming in through open blinds, I took the opportunity to photograph The Kids while we enjoyed a nice afternoon together. At some point, I knelt down on my hands and knees so I could put the camera in a special position on the floor where it might be possible to get a good picture of one or another of them who had begrudgingly joined me in such a low place—you know, the kind of place they’re loath to go.
So, as you might expect, me being on all fours provided an easy opportunity for…
Surprise! Kazon hopped on my back and got comfortable. He does love to sleep on my shoulders and to climb aboard my back when it’s made convenient. How could I have expected anything else?
In his usual way, he settled in and went about his own business. In this case, that meant looking out the windows.
Then he realized I was still on the floor. That he was lying on top of me didn’t register. Kazon’s like that, you know. I mean… well… simple. To be polite about it.
Then came the question: “Daddy, don’t you want to come up here and play with me? I’m ‘King of the Hill,’ but I bet you’d enjoy this game, too! Come on. Try to knock me off.”
He still hasn’t figured out that I can’t join him up there.
Needless to say, he got cozy and made sure I was stuck in that position for quite some time.
And the picture I was trying to take? Forgotten, of course.
