Father and son

“Dad do you know which day it is ?” His son asked him.

“Why ? Is it your birthday or your mom’s ? or my anniversary ? “ His dad said thinking hard.

“It is … I .. just.. nothing” His voice trailed away.

After he left his dad noticed a gift and greetings made by his son. When he opened it he saw “Happy Birthday my dear hero” in bold. His eyes got watery seeing that.

“What Happened?” Asked his wife.

“Nothing. I was just… thinking to sleep” He said hiding the tears.

His son had inherited his nature of not showing emotions explicitly. He went and watched his 5 year old son , curled up in bed, fast asleep already 🙂
