Like a Bird

“Do you ever wonder what it’d be like to be a bird and to just be able to fly around the world and see everything?”

“You do realize that birds go on the same migratory adventure every year, right? They don’t go all around the world.”

“Well, they still see a lot more of the world than I do.”

“That’s true. However, you don’t leave your house very much to begin with. I mean I could walk down the street and see more of the world than you ever have.”

“I get out of the house!.. Sometimes.”

“Look, do you want to go out and see the world or just sit in your house all day, everyday.”

“Can’t I have both?”

“How are you supposed to do both?”

“I’ve read stories of moving houses. I could make one of those.”

“But, you won’t even exit your house to make one of them.”

“I can figure out a way to build the moving house from in here.”

“You know if you weren’t in bed all the time, you might not be so pale, or sick all the time.”

“Well maybe if I wasn’t crippled I could get out of bed.” *eyes start to tear up*

“Yeah, you’re right. But, I can always carry you around town”

“The sun burns my skin though.”

“It does that to everyone.”

“I wish I had feathers like a bird so that it wouldn’t burn.”

“I do too. But, I will take you anywhere in the world.”

“That’s really sappy to say.”  *giggle*

“You are my daughter, so most things I say are sappy.”

“I love you Dad.”

“I love you too sweetie.”
