Like Pippi


We had gingerbread and whipped cream after dinner. Roozle doesn’t like whipped cream. Or she’s never had it and refuses to try it. I told her it’s just milk and sugar. She said that she just doesn’t like sugar so she didn’t want it. I told her that if she had a tiny taste, I’d let her stick her face in it. Like Pippi Longstocking.

She tasted it. Said she liked it but wasn’t interested in more than a taste. And then my cautious little Roozle stuck her face into a bowl of whipped cream I made for her. She laughed and asked me to wipe it off, so she could do it again.

She didn’t eat the gingerbread either. Not one bite.
