It fits the grandpa too!

By S.H.Moulana - Riyadh

It was a Saturday but I had some urgent work in office to be attended to, which would take few hours to finish. As usual, my wife selected what I should wear that day.

Quite strangely, this time, there was a trouser and a T-Shirt! I have neither seen nor worn this T-Shirt before, which will go well only with a teenager.

Wonder she considered the hot weather we are in now!

On questioning further she told me that this is our second grandson’s T-Shirt and he left it for you when he joined the university.

What more explanation grandparent need who dearly love their grandchildren, I rushed to wear it.
Arriving in office there were many inquisitive eyes probing on me. I called my assistant and asked him to take a picture of me in my new attire.

I promptly e-mailed my grandson attaching the picture for which he responded ‘Grandpa, the T-Shirt looks very familiar to me!’ I responded by saying: normally children and grandchildren inherit from their parents and grandparents but in this case it is the opposite.

Few e-mails were exchanged soon after, enjoying the fun.

The famous American country and western singer, Reba McEntire, once said ‘My goals have changed throughout my life. At one time it was winning awards, selling out concert dates, selling more albums than anyone else. Now my goals are to see my grandchildren grown, live a long and healthy life with my family and friends and travel the world’.

Talking about travelling we still remember how we took two of our grandchildren on a five-day cruise departing from Singapore, on a luxury liner, and how much they enjoyed and the amount of pleasure they gave us by that as grandparents.

They enjoyed everything the liner had to offer for, especially, children. However, the T-Shirt is no means less a treasure to keep us happy and smiling!

All what I have said here may sound like foreign to those yet to marry or those married and having children but not grandchildren.

Don't worry your turn will come to enjoy and please be patient until then!
