This is the last day of my Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge. You can find the challenge rules from my first day’s post Here.
Again, I would like to thank Cosme from bCL Photography for inviting me to participate this challenge, and thank everyone for reading my stories. I am having a lot of fun as you can see. (I am also running out good stories 😉
I would like to invite Suyash Chopra to participate this challenge. Suyash is one of those wise and kind guys I met in this community. I have always learned something every time I visited his blog. I am sure you’ll like his blog as much as I do.
A nine year old boy has a fever, so his mother takes him to see a Dr. The receptionist gives them a form to fill out. An opportunity to educate, the mother thinks. She patiently explains to her son why it is necessary to fill out a form. The boy plays with his toy soldiers on the floor; he isn’t listening.
“Name – you write your name here. What’s your name?”
The boy doesn’t answer. She says his name loudly enough for him to hear while writing it down on the paper.
She continues. “Address – do you know our address?”
He doesn’t respond. She says their address and writes it down on the paper.
“Age – You are 9 year old, so you write 9 here. Okay?”
The boy gets up from the floor, plunks himself into the chair next to his mother, still doesn’t make a sound.
Suddenly she feels a tug at her sleeve. She turns around, her head bumping into her son’s head.
“MOM–” he says and quickly stops himself. He glances around the room. When people stop watching, in an audible voice, he whispers into his mother’s ear, “I haven’t had it yet!”
