I replied, “I love YOU so much.”
And he said, “I love you MORE.” He pulled himself up to his full metre-and-a-bit height and said fervently,
I love you even more than I CAN SAY Even more than ONE MILLION Even more than the ENTIRE outer space Even if the planets were CAMOUFLAGED More than the ENTIRE SUN … which is a BIG BALL OF FIRE More than the ENTIRE WORLD
I love you MORE Even more than YOURSELF Even more than ANYTHING!
And then he paused, evidently thinking hard for some way to express how very much he loved me. And then he hit upon it. He said with conviction,
I love you EVEN MORE than YOU love HOT SAUCE Mama!
Well, I think that about sums it up. My boy 🙂
