A Tender Moment

(We’re lying in bed.)
GIDEON (Age 6): Daddy, are you ever going to die?
ME: Yes, a long time from now.
GIDEON: I think you are going to die when you’re 100.
ME: That would be good. (Gideon holds my hand. What a sweet boy!) But no matter how long I live or when I die, I will always love you with all my heart, forever and always. (Gideon puts my hand next to his heart while holding it. What a tender moment.)
GIDEON: Daddy?
ME: Yes?
GIDEON: I just beat you in arm wrestling.
