Dad at the Mall

26 02 2008

I took my Dad to the mall the other day, to buy new shoes. We decided to grab a bite to eat in the Food Court while there. I noticed my Dad watching a teenager sitting next to him. The teenager had spiked hair of all different colors, red, green, orange, and blue. My Dad kept staring at him. The teenager would look and find him staring every time. When the teenage had enough, he sarcastically asked, ” Whats the matter old man, never done anything wild in your life”? Knowing my Dad, I quickly swallowed my food, so that I would not choke on his response, knowing it would be a good one. And in classic style, he did not bat an eye, and simply replied…………….” Got drunk once and slept with a Peacock. I was just wondering if you were my son”!

You should submit this to Reader’s Digest.

It’s such a classic!
