Cheap Thrills

Here on the Bypass the nights have turned chilly.

As Rahul snuggled into bed I suggested that tonight we could do something fun -- instead of me reading him his bedtime story, how about we call his Dadu (my father) and have him do the honours?

He turned the offer down without hesitation, even though Dadu is known to tell quite satisfactory stories, filled with dragons and dinosaurs and all kinds of monsters and vehicles and other such things calculated to give a little boy exciting dreams.

As he put it, "Dadu's stories are not as good as yours. Your stories are fantastic."

I know it's a cheap thrill but I'll take what I can get. As it is I barely restrained the urge to call my father and gloat.
