Him waking up very early from bed.
With suit and tie already in place, they have been thread
into his public head-he goes for coffee and some bread
Smart, driven to the point of non forgiven;
In enters the nutty son in pyjamas not knowing
still if he´s here or there or even in the Bahamas,
but there is father poised as a King and the son says:
Father ” Good morning.” Everything very formal
as it is our normal.
Son “What did Mr.X say in the conference you where at yesterday?”
Father, looking impeccable, ready for life´s battle in that cage that he can
so well rattle, he looks up, then down, then to my mother sitting in the
coffee table, he sort of goes `hujum hujum´ and responds:
“You´ll get to see it tomorrow when I publish it in the web.”
Mother on the coffee table laughing without cursing,
son just stares and does a blink and doesn´t think-
much, “O.K” he responds and walks off to go to school
since for him is normal to hear the man that formal.
I was talking today with my mother by phone and don´t know how
this subject came up, but like those are quite a bit from my early days
and mind you the old man hasn´t change, we did have a good laugh about
it. Specially when I said to her “Come on, I know he´s like that but that is not
normal” her response still laughing her head off, ” I know, that´s why when
I see you and the things you say like for example when you say, `I don´t feel
like talking now´ (I actually say that if you can believe it) for me it also seems
you´re normal in the abnormal. Both of you are not very normal.
Stay Frosty gents and gentesses.
