The Gorilla 

Before my daughter could talk she had a favorite book which had pictures of about 10 animals and in this book each animal had a furry patch to touch…       The anteater had a fuzzy tongue and the gorilla had a hairy chest for examples. 

I noticed she loved the gorilla most of all. She would kiss the face of the gorilla so much that her 2 teeth had dented the gorilla picture on his mouth. 

Then one day after she’d begun to first talk, she opened her book to the gorilla picture and kissed him and smiled at me and pointed to the Gorilla and said, “Dada.”
