• It is never easy to handle a son who tests the depth of the water with both feet.
  • It is very tough to be the father of a son who breaks all the windows in the neighbourhood
  • It is almost impossible to put up with a son who asks the weirdest questions one could ever imagine
I know a certain father who has been patient with his son over the years. I remember one incident that happened in their dining room. The father, mother and son were having dinner. Suddenly

Son: Daddy, are insects good to eat?
Father: Have I not told you never to mention such things during meals!
Mother: Why did you say that, Son? Why did you ask the question?
Son: It's because I saw one on daddy's meal, but now it's gone.

The son used to create trouble in school always. His teacher wrote a note to his father. It read "Your son has a Fantastic imagination! Unmatched in his capacity for blending fact with fiction.He's definitely one of the biggest liars I have ever met". The father got angry and told the son," Use your lies (SO CALLED CREATIVITY) in some art form and not in real life".

Once the son was 8 years old, fell ill and his father took him to a doctor. They were waiting for their turn to meet the doctor. The father decided to educate his son with some medical terms and asked him few questions

Father:Do you know what an artery is?
Son: Study of art forms
Father:No son. That is wrong. (He went on explaining it for a while and the son fixes his eyes on a certain man lying unconscious in a bed)
Son: Dad! Why is that man lying down like that?
Father: He is in a state of coma
Son: Does that mean that he can also be in semicolon, colon, full stop and other punctuation marks too?

The father just ignored his question. He does that on many occasions. Even today he ignores most of questions. He is celebrating his birthday today. For the world he might be just yet another person; but for me, he is my world. [link]

"Happy birthday Papa". Yes! I call him Papa!!!
