Rainbow Skin

Across from me on the subway was a man holding two little girls on his lap. One of the girls accidentally dropped her lolly pop, and the man quickly reached down, snatching the pop inches before it hit the ground.

"Wow, Daddy!" the girl said. "How'd you do that?"

She stared up at him, wide eyed. He might as well have had rainbow skin.

It made me laugh. Funny how when you're little you're amazed by the littlest things, as if your size is purposely in disproportion to your ability to believe in something. Or someone. Thank god for that.
