wasted

A Chapter by Ana Papaya

On my sixteenth birthday my father gave me a watch. 

He told me I could wear it if I wanted to.  But that if I did I would wind up keeping track of it and most likely waste it.  He meant Time.  That I'd become a slave to it.

My father never owned a watch.  So for his 65th birthday I bought him one.   As a reminder that he should start keeping track and not waste it.

thanks so much Cory! :)
A role reversal of sorts, where the girl, now a woman, says says so much without words and the father, smiles at being transported back to giving yours, and smile, knowing she has learned well.
A beautiful thought indeed.
