Dad looked shocked when I entered the bathroom when he was drying himself after his shower. I looked decidedly interested, thrilled to bits by all that meat. He obviously registered this, confirming what he must have suspected. A moment passed and then he let the towel drop.
I dropped as well, straight to my knees and set about gobbling on another piece of meat.
It was the start of a very happy new stage in our relationship, which I hope will last for many years.
