Dad takes me to school everyday. The most reliable taxi in the world...he he. He has being doing that ever since I started school. Ever since kinddy, actually. Some of my school friends take the school bus. The richer looking ones have drivers to send them to and from school. They usually also have maids to carry their school bags for them. When it rains, the maid will hold the umbrella for them so that they can continue to play with their mobile phone...he he. When we were much younger, dad said, some of the maids even turned up at lunch time to feed them. I wondered whether the maids ran after them, with a spoon full of food while they played catch catch with their friends...he he.
Dad said that, of all our activities, taking me to school is the one he loves the most. He said that taking me to school everyday is like; father and daughter quality time, twice a day.
Dad said that I haven’t changed much over the years. In the morning I am fresh, lively, cheerful and chatty. So, I tell him things. So, he listens, asks me questions and then we chat. After school, I am tired, sometimes grumpy, sometimes discouraged but mostly happy and have tons of things to say, so, I tell him things. So, he listens, asks me questions and then we chat. And we chat some more and then I will doze off...while he continues to chat.... he he. School can be tiring sometimes.
Dad said that it is easy to chat in the car because there are no distractions and interruptions. You can’t like just get up and go to the toilet or go to the fridge to get a drink or something...he he. So, you can get a real good chat if you are looking for a real good chat.
There is something really funny about umbrella. When there is no rain, there is always an umbrella in the car but when it rains, you can never find one... he he. Then, how? Run for it! Aiyoh!
