the tickle spot

One Summer I had a job watching two children for long hours every day. We had a tickle fight one day, and I told them I am not ticklish except for one place. I finally caved in and told them where it was. It’s my hip bones at the very top. But the problem came when their dad came home.

I had a strange relationship with the father to begin with, and he was very quiet and kind of ignored me. When he got home, I was getting ready to leave, and the boy said, “Megan has a secret ticklish spot that only works on teenage girls.” As soon as he said that I realized how bad that sounded. I felt really weird and said, “That’s not what I said,” and tried to explain, but the dad gave me a weird look, and I just left.
