Any man with a daughter dreads certain things. Well, correction, A NUMBER of certain things. We’re all on the same page here, yeah?
Anyway, despite the fact that most would prefer it if these things came later rather than sooner, the facts of life dictate that these events will indeed come, and some will come before others.
Let’s all just hope and pray that we aren’t so unlucky as to be stuck in a car when they do! That’s exactly what happened when one dad picked his young daughter up from school one fateful day…
As any father would, he asked his daughter what she’d learned in school that day.
Since she was still only in grade school, he assumed he’d be regaled with stories of the ABCs and learning the value of sharing.
You know what they say about assuming, right?
His little girl, brimming with excitement, couldn’t wait to tell him!
“Today,” she said proudly, “we learned that boys are different from girls!”
Looking in the rear view mirror, the father could only see his daughter’s hair — she was still so little.
My teacher said that boys have a thing that girls don’t,” she continued.
“Ah…yes, well that is true,” the father said, a little daunted.
Unable to think of anything further to say, he anxiously let the car descend into silence…and then his daughter started talking again.
