We were passing by a billboard with kids dressed up in a variety of roles, and I was curious which of these roles appealed to my son…
Papa: Tiger, what would you like to be when you grow up?
Tiger: Hmmm… an “autographer!”
(I thought to myself that he has aspirations of becoming a star figure that is always signing autographs, but I persisted in my enquiry)
Papa: What’s an autographer?
Tiger: Simple – he’s someone like you.
Papa: What do you mean?
Tiger: Someone who is always taking photographs.
What’s in a Name?
I read a brief write up about a king and decided to test my son’s perspective on the subject…
Papa: Tiger, how about we change your name to something more interesting?
Tiger: Like what?
Papa: Well, I was thinking we could change it to Gajendra Singh II – Then, everyone will think you are a King of someplace.
Tiger: (Thinks for a bit and says) No, papa. I don’t want to.
Tiger: It’s too difficult for me to spell.
Now, you know.
