You Don’t Like Uncle Chris?

Generally, I get along well with children and animals. Something about my disposition, personality, or perhaps my general vibe, helps us “click.” This was not the case, though, when I recently met the three-month old daughter of friends here in Bangkok.


This little pumpkin was fussy from the get-go, giving me only a few tear-free minutes. I tried rocking, standing, sitting, cooing, singing… anything to soothe her. Eventually, giving her back to mom was the answer.

  1. HA! My daughter was just like that. She’s still kinda like that at 6. You have no idea how many kindly people, accustomed to being beloved by children and animals, have been hurt by my daughter. It’s so embarrassing.
