The Outraged Father

My eyes welled up, and I was overwhelmed with emotions as I saw them walk off. “He should have listened to me,” I told my wife in a broken voice.
“He always does,” she replied, “You know how much he loves and respects you, but this is something he had to do for himself.” I was still not convinced, and argued, “But he’s just started working…”
“You were a good-for-nothing bum when we got married,” she countered. “But what will people say?” I almost wailed. “It’s their decision, why should they care about what people think or feel?” came the reply.
“And what about my feelings?” I said exasperatedly, “Do you think I like it that my only son is going on his honeymoon with his husband and staying in a mere B&B, when I have offered them our Hawaii beach villa for free!”

    • Ha ha ha. Thank you so much for reading it, and glad that you liked it. I try never to be too serious, especially about the serious stuff, for we were meant to be happy, not bogged down by negativity and sadness. Why not hope for a day when this ‘twist’ will be commonplace 🙂
