Why Parents Have Gray Hair
Mather passing by his son' s bedroom was astonishment see the bed nicely made up and everything neat andthey.
Then he saw an envelope propped up prominently on the pillow. It was addressed, "Dad". With the worst premonition,
he envelope and read the trembling hands:
It is with great regret and sorrow that I' m writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wantedto avoid a
scene with you and Mom.
I' been finding real passion with Joan and she is so nice. I knew you would not approve other because of all her
piercings, tattoos, airtight motorcycle clothes and because she is so much otherthan I am but its not only the
passion, Dad, she' s pregnant.
Joan says that we are going to be very happy. She owns derailer in the woods and has a stack , enough for
the whole winter. We share a dream behaving many more children.
Joan has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn' t really hurt anyone. We' ll be growing it it with the
other people in the commune for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want.
In the meantime, we' ll pray that science will find a cure so Joan can get better; she sure deserves it!
Don' t worry Dad, I' m ‘ old now and I know how to take care of myself. Someday, I' m sure we' ll be back to visit so
you can get to know your grandchildren.
Your son, Chad

in life than the report card thats in my desk drawer.
