Dim Sum - (NaBloPoMo #27)



I’m sitting here, trying to think of something pithy and intelligent to write and gazing idly at the photograph of our youngest daughter which sits to the left of my computer in an old silver frame which I found in an antique shop in Paris and paid too much for. (Aside: the frame, not the daughter) She looks …..er….she looks normal. Well, almost normal when you consider her gene pool.

Anyway, enough about pools. Sitting here, gawping at the photo, I’m wondering what possessed the child to eat a digit instead of her cha siu baau.

“What did it look like?” I asked in face-wrinkling fascination
“Dead,” she replied matter of factly
“Dead? What sort of Dead?”
“Limp Dead. Flacid, flabby Dead”
“What did it taste like?”
“Nothing really. Gotta run, bye Mama,” she said and put the phone down.

So the child eats digits and leaves body parts all over Europe. What does that say about her genetic heritage? Do you think it has something to do with the fact that the maternal branch of my family goes all the way back to Genghis Kahn?

(Aside: Apropos the body parts, I exaggerate a little. She had an emergency appendectomy while on a ski-trip in Austria. Oh, just in case you were wondering, the digit belonged to a broiled chicken foot.)

Dear Tessa, lovely daughter you have there. I have one equally pretty, though in the blond variety.

What does it feel like to topple over from the loo into the bath? Did you get any bruises?

I must investigate your blog further. You seem like an interesting person.

Eh? Why shriek, bye, sorry? Please don't go!

LittleBrownDog said...

Yeuch! Was wondering where that was leading to... (now I know). Came here from Jane's page - was intrigued by your shriek. Interesting and entertaining blog, though. Love your photographs.

Umm, does the cha siu bau remain uneaten? If not, I love a good bun.

You had me worried there with that "digit"! Was this particular digit part of a dim sum meal by any chance???
