You Know What Daddy?

TERJEMAHAN

A couple weeks ago we were coming home from visiting my brother in Long Island and we stopped at a burger place off the highway.
Beberapa minggu yang lalu kami dalam perjalan pulang dari menjenguk saudara saya di Long Island dan kami berhenti di gerai burger di luar jalan tol.

He had a Junior Whopper.
Dia memesan Junior Whopper.

I had a Whopper.
Saya memesan Whopper.

We split the fries.
Kentangnya kami bagi berdua.

And while we were eating, he said: ‘You know what Daddy? You’re a really great Daddy. I love you Daddy.’
Dan ketika kami sedang makan, dia bilang: ‘Ayah tahu tidak? Ayah itu Ayah yang keren. Aku sayang Ayah.’

And that got me.
Itu mengejutkanku.

I almost choked on my burger.
Aku hampir tersedak burgerku.

Because it wasn’t bedtime.
Karena waktu itu bukan saatnya untuk tidur.

He wasn’t leaving for school.
Dia tidak sedang hendak berangkat sekolah.

It was just off the cuff.
Itu datang begitu saja.
