(This isn’t a continuation of the Sempit blog. That sequel is coming soon, I promise…)
Here are some questions you’ll probably hear from your children in the near future. If you’re not married or do not have children yet, just wait. One day when you have children, they’ll probably ask these questions.
Kid: Dad, why is do you and mom always say “3 o’clock”, “12 o’clock” and “9 o’clock” when you drive to a roundabout? Its only not even 8am yet…
You: Ummm… Well if you imagine you’re looking at a clock, then 12 o’clock straight ahead… (you go into a detail explanation on the clock face theory)
Kid: But what’s a clock face? My watch only says “7:55”.
You: Well, that because you have a digital clock. You need to look at an analogue clock, the one with 2 hands.
Kid: What’s an analogue clock? 2 hands?
You: … (sigh) 3 more days til school starts again…
Kid: Dad, why does my PC have an ‘A:’ drive and a ‘C:” drive but no ‘B:’ drive?
You: (Goes into long explanation of PC history)… Long time ago… PC… 5.25” floppy disk… hard drive… obsolete…I’m getting old…etc.
Kid: But why are floppy disk not floppy? They hard! And what is an inch?
You: Oh, look your mother’s here. Why don’t you go ask her?
Keep on praying against the natural disasters, everybody. Peace out.
