Tickling My Mom
When I was 8, i came into the living room to see my 7 year old sister trying to tickle mom's feet(her worst spot by far). Mom held her own against sis, keeping her feet firmly planted on the ground. I came in and, despite her plea NOOOO, I tried a hammer hold on her right foot. She had incredible strength, but her foot landed in my lap. I yelled delightedly: I've got her foot." "NOOOOOOOOOOOO," was her response as Ilaunched an attack on her sole. Her strength snapped as she dissolved in hysterical laughter. Sis got her other foot with ease. Mom tried blocking her nose, blocking her breath, etc., but nothing helped her as two ruthless kids worked over her feet and her every ticklish spot for the next hour!!!! I've tickled many since then, but this experience helped launch me on my tickle ways. I can still see the loving tears of laughter, hear her frenzied, garbled pleas and mindless laughter, and feel the excitement of her being totally at our heartless mercy. We all remained very close!
