tantalizing toes

Little ChiChi and Papa play a game when ChiChi comes over for the day. Every single time, Papa asks ChiChi if he can have one of his pinky-toes. He wants to make pinky-toe soup, and says he just loves to nibble on delicious pinky-toes.

Well, ChiChi is having none of it, of course. He's pretty attached to his little pinky-toes. So they wrestle and laugh and play about this on a daily basis.

Yesterday was something else. ChiChi was having himself a little fit when Papa came into the room. He started right in about the pinky-toes, asking ChiChi about if he was going to give up the pinky-toes.

ChiChi had his little crabby look on his face, but he stopped what he was doing. He walked over to the chair and sat down. He stuck out one foot, and slowly, deliberately, looking at Papa the entire time, pushed one shoe off his heel with the toe of the other foot. He let it slide slowly off his foot, finally dropping it to the floor. Clunk. He got the tiniest grin on his face. Then, just as slowly, he pushed the shoe off his other foot, letting that one follow the first one onto the floor. Clunk.

Then he tiptoed over to the loveseat, just a little closer to Papa, and ever so slowly, pinched the top edge of his sock and started wiggling it off his foot. He stopped when it was halfway off, and with his sock dangling off his toes, gave it a little wiggle with his foot. I was falling off the couch by this time, hysterical with laughter. He didn't crack anything more than that little smirky grin as he finished pushing the sock completely off his foot. He wiggled his toes gleefully in the air, much to Papa's and my amusement, letting loose with a little cackling giggle. Just the sound of that can make me laugh.

ChiChi followed suit with the other sock, inching it off bit by bit, teasing, tantalizing Papa with his wiggly little toes. So stinkin' funny! Papa sat up straight, and immediately! ChiChi whipped his feet underneath his butt and sat down firmly, finally cracking a full-out grin.

Papa said, "I can smell those delicious pinky-toes. They smell soooooo good!"

ChiChi stared at him, then pulled one of his feet out and put his toes up to his nose. "Aaacckk!" he choked. "They are so stinky. They are DIS-GUST-ING. Pee-YEW!"

Wow, that kid is entertaining!
