Does this fall under "do unto others"?

It is not uncommon for Dale to appear at my bedside in the middle of the night once or twice every couple of weeks.

Last night was one of those nights.

Usually he has lost whatever stuffed thing he went to sleep with, or wants to be tucked in.

Last night, though, he threw me for a loop:

Would you come do one nice thing for me?"

Because I had been pretty much sleeping - soundly I might add - I may have asked him to repeat himself.

After he asked the same question again, I wanted to know, "What do you want me to do?"

His response?

You can choose."


My only guess is the boy must have been pretty sound asleep himself.

I followed him to his room, tucked him back into bed and kissed him good night. I guess this satisfied him as a 'nice thing' because we both went back to sleep without another word.

So, my friends, head out into the world this week and do "one nice thing" for someone. But remember: You can choose. ;)
