Dad, I don’t feel so good, I don’t think I can go to school today
Now what happened, you seemed so eager to get back to school during your holidays
now what’s the problem dear?
Its kind of a big problem
Can I help? Do you wanna talk about it?
It’s woman’s stuff, I think I’ll need mom for this
Well mum’s gone off to work early today, she has a big day today remember?
yeah! Can I not go to school and wait till mom comes?
Okay, lets see now! If I promise you that what you tell me will remain between the two of us, will you tell me?
I suppose I can tell you (whispering in daddy’s ear)
My dear, don’t worry about that. Some girls develop them later than others
What if I don’t develop them at all?
But you will…
I can’t give you a date or anything
..but I waited a long time for this. I’m in the 6th grade now
now dear, you get what you gonna get when you get it
I can’t go to school looking like this, all the boys are gonna laugh at me
Michelle my dear, they are gonna laugh at you if you get them, laugh at you if you don’t get them..because that’s how boys are at this age, it’s not your problem, its theirs
daddy, can I ask you something?
were you like that when you were that age?
who me? nooooooo
Did you look at the girls?
Yeah I did
…and you never laughed at them?
Yeah, your mother was in my class. Go ask her
but she’s not at home
Ask her when she gets back..okay?
So what’s it gonna be, will you be going to school today?
I guess so
RETURNING FROM SCHOOL LATER THAT DAY
Hi dad (walking towards the room)
wait a minute now, how was your first day in school?
fine? Come and sit down
Now this morning you weren’t going to school. Everything okay? What happened?
like you said dad “you get what you gonna get when you get it” and lot of us haven’t got it as yet! 😉
