The sleeping game
This is a fine idea, and has some merit to it. Certainly, monsters will not attack you if you're snuggled up to your dad, and it's unlikely that you're going to be cold. But Bram, there's a few things we need to sort out.
I know that I asked you recently to stop urinating on me, but perhaps I was too specific. Please stop inundating me with your bodily fluids. Certainly the display of projectile vomit last night was impressive, and had your mother and I laughing hysterically and chanting "the power of Christ compels you", but I don't think that you needed to perform an encore at 3am directly into my neck.
"Skin to skin contact" all the books say is a sure way to keep you healthy and happy. A cute misnomer like "posseting", punkling, in no way prepared me for the torrents with which I was presented early this morning. Perhaps the books should mention a handy towel as well.
