Anyway, as I'm holding Big (all the while cursing that body busting workout I did this morning that is making my arms ache and quiver, and he's so darn heavy!) he begins to rub my back. Up and down, up and down. Then he says to me, "Say thank you." "What?!" I say. He replies, " I'm rubbing your back... say thanks." So, I said "thank you" and laughed a little. What else could I do?
