Emergency

Zeina: "Dadddd!!! Come quick! It's an emergency!!"
Me: "I'm coming Zeina!  What happened?  What's wrong?"

I run to the bathroom as quickly as an overweight middle-aged man can. 

Me: "What is it Zeina?  What happened?"
Zeina: "Can you bring me the cat?  I just want to hold her while I am in the bathroom."

I don't even know what to say to that.  So, I just go and get her the cat.  Then, I go and just sit down and stare at the ceiling for a couple of minutes.
