The last ten years have flown by in the blink of an eye. I have, over those last few years, from time to time watched television with my little buddy in the brown chair. At least one of us, though, is getting bigger. As we were sitting together earlier today, watching Corner Gas, I found myself wondering how many more times I’ll have the opportunity to share time with my son this way. He’s ten now, and it won’t be long before sitting with Dad will be a deprecated function.
I turned to him at one point and said, “It won’t be long before we can’t sit together in this chair anymore.” He looked me right in the eye and, without missing a beat, said “Get a bigger chair.” Then he turned his attention back to Brent Butt’s misadventures.
