Your grandson, Henry, has always faced life straight on. Something works, but is a bit unorthodox? Who cares.
My dad came to visit yesterday, just thought he’d swing by for a cup o’ joe and I was so very delighted he did. At 82, it’s amazing he is still able to drive.
We had a nice visit, very pleasant really. It was as he was preparing to leave that I found out just how practical old Henry really is. Noticed some Christmas stickers on the rim of his tires.
“What’s that?” I pointed to the out-of-place bright little stickers.
Bessy, his friend, just chuckled. “They’re on every tire.”
I moved to the next and the next and the next… yup, four tires all with Christmas stickers.
Bessy smiled again. “It’s how your father keeps track of the tires when he rotates them. They’re the only thing sticky enough to stay on.”
Sure they are.
You know, they make sense in a weird kind of way, kind of practical, too.
Wonder if I’ll ever be so smart?
