"Twenty Dollars Per
"Daddy, how much do you make an hour?" With a timid voice and
idolizing eyes, the little boy greeted his father as he returned from work.
Greatly surprised, but giving his boy a glaring look, the father said: "Look, sonny,
not even your mother knows that. Don't bother me now, I'm tired."
"But Daddy, just tell me please! How much do you make an hour," the boy
insisted. The father, finally giving up, replied: "Twenty dollars per hour."
"Okay, Daddy. Could you loan me ten dollars?" the boy asked.
Showing his restlessness and positively disturbed, the father yelled: "So that was
the reason you asked how much I earn, right? Go to sleep and don't bother me
It was already dark and the father was meditating on what he said and was feeling guilty.
Maybe he thought , his son wanted to buy something.
Finally, trying to ease his mind, the father went to his son's room.
"Are you asleep, son?" asked the father. "No, Daddy. Why?" replied the
boy, partially asleep.
"Here's the money asked for earlier, " the father said.
"Thanks, Daddy!" rejoiced the son, while putting his hand under his pillow and
removing some money. "Now I have enough! Now I have twenty dollars!" the boy
said to his father, who was gazing at his son, confused at what his son had just said.
"Daddy, could you sell me one hour of your time?"
Time is too precious to spend it all on work! Appreciate your love ones and don't take
them for granted.
