Growing up, Dee had been a bit of a troublemaker. He’d delighted in playing practical jokes on the other kids, tying shoelaces together, gluing cups to the table, putting salt in the sugar basin and sugar in the salt pot, shaking soda cans so whoever opened them got sprayed… He’d driven mother spare and some of his pranks were now legendary.
Sometimes he wondered how she’d put up with him, so one day he asked her.
Mother laughed fondly. “Oh, you were such a naughty boy,” she agreed, “but it was never out of meanness. You always looked so pleased with yourself, and you had the kind of laugh that made everyone laugh with you, no matter what you’d done. It was hard to be angry with you. Thankfully, like most naughty boys, you eventually grew out of that phase, but I’ve always loved you just the way you are.”
