One Question, a True StoryI knew a friend who knew the father of this young girl so listen up all ye who have heart.One Question, a True Story by ThaliaxxxRamos
A young girl, about the age of seven waited for her father to come home from work. It was already past 11:20. When her father came she asked him,
"Daddy how much do you earn an hour?"
Her father replied wearily, " Dear why would you care?" and went up to his bed and fell asleep. The next day she waited again till her father came back and questioned,"Daddy, how much do you earn an hour?"
Her father replied," Dear it is none of your business." and left to bed. The next day the she waited again and again she asked him, getting the same reply.
This continued for a week, until the father finally replied angrily, "FINE! I EARN 30 DOLLARS AN HOUR!! ARE YOU HAPPY?!?!"
The daughter then asked him,"Will you give me 15 dollars?"
Her father then gave her 15 dollars, confused. Then the girl went to her room and brought out 15 dollars from under her mattress and asked, "Daddy will you spend an hour with me?"
Because both of my children were born in February (some four years and three days apart) it's always been a special month for me. A special Happy Birthday to Scott and Lisa... and to all of you born in February.
Remember: A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip!
