May bit into a raw Thai chilli pepper. Hey, I thought that one time I let her try a dab of fresh chilli pepper was enough to establish baseline for the meaning of “spicy.” But apparently it didn’t register strongly enough. So she took a chilli pepper, and against my warning, bit into it, bit the top clear off. And then, the face scrunched up and she said “cay cay ! cay cay!” (spicy, hot). Her tone was pleading for help, as in, DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS! So I gave her a piece of sweet candy I had on hand after I asked her to spit out the pepper. May’s eyes were tearing up, poor babe, but she didn’t cry. Once I got a piece of candy deposited, I went for the real cure – sugar. Fed her about 1 tsp of sugar, a bit at a time. Followed by room temp water. Trust me, this is the best cure. Don’t go for water right away. Sugar. I ate a damn Habanero pepper by mistake. I know.

Before 12/15, May used to mix up “chua chua / cay cay ” (sour vs spicy). But now, no more. She can verbally differentiate the two tastes. And, she was fingering some raw garlic slices yesterday when I told her, “it’s spicy, almost like the chilli pepper, want to have a bite?” “NO thanks” she said.

Tonight, at bed time, she told me “cu’ nha(‘m ma(‘t gio^’ng May” (the owl closes his eyes, like May.” That was after “Me. be^’ con” request (Mom, hold me). Quotable quotes.
