You Can Walk???

My papa is one of those grandpas who with grab you and tickle you to death till your about to pee your pants! Recently he had to get surgery on his foot and had to be in a wheel chair for quit a few weeks, gradually he made it from just needed crutches to walking slowly on it. How is this info relevant to the story I am about to tell you, you might ask?  We had been visiting at their house and my sister was playing with papa, running around his chair staying just out of his reach so he couldn't grab her and tickle her. " ha ha papa! You can't get me!" she said. Well... my little sister had not been informed that my papa did not need a wheel chair any more and could indeed walk on his own now. " o' ya" my papa said as he started to get up from his chair.  " YOU CAN WALK NOW!!" the look on her face was simply priceless! It was a mixture of horror and pure shock. The days of her being able to tease papa and him not being able to chase after her are now over:)
