This is the story of a first strand of hair...not just any kind of hair but that strand of hair that brought us so much laughter and fun to the family.........read on.
Jovial was excitedly telling me this,"papa, you see I've got the first dot of pimple surfacing on my armpit rather than on my face, how come?" I said son the time had come...................few hours later,while he was doing his home work.
Suddenly Jovial blurted out in the presence of the rest of the family," Papa and mommy, this Friday we must go celebrate already" i was like celebrating what? no particular reason to and we have been enjoying ourselves lately so money was to tight to mention.
With all his innocent giggles and laughter, he said,"papa papa, come i show you" I walked toward where he was sitting, he pulled down his pants and asked me this," Can see or not papa? can or not?" I said i could only see a patch of white barren skin near his"secret place" then not convinced he asked me to see closer, i said the same, then he walked to his mother and asking her the same thing.
Then my lovely wife said she could see a tiny microscopic strand of white hair,then Jovial was laughing out laugh and happy,"He ha, my first pubic hair came out already and Friday we can go celebrate already" and we were dumbfounded and we had good laugh.
Life is funny, when we are small, we can't wait to grow up but when we are grown up, how we wish we could stop the hand of time.
P/S : I am glad he shares his laughter and joy with us
