Lessons from Pater

As for my taste for comfort and luxury, these were passed on to me by my father, a person of great importance who employed a staff to care for his every need, which mainly included mealtimes and chauffeured visits to the park. Father viewed this not as exploitation but as charity, claiming that this activity gave the lower classes purpose they would otherwise lack in their lives. It was to be a lesson that would inspire me for the rest of my life.

(I’m going to be just like you, Dad!)

            Oh, I got the reference.

            When I was in high school, my psychology teacher and one of the history teachers were in a band together (well, they still are, as far as I know); they played that song for us in class one day.

    Puppy fuzz!
    What song?

      I think it’s called “I want to be like you”…the boy’s monkey friend sings it to him (these days, I think I’d rather be the monkey, LOL!).

    I would obey that pup’s every order. How can a human resist that face???
