A Story My Daddy Told Me

Two men got off a plane and made their way to the airport exit. The older man saw his wife and children waiting for him and rushed to greet them. He clutched the teenager in a hug and said, “Oh, I missed you so much!”

He then hugged the middle child in a firm embrace and said, “Honey, I missed you so much!”

He took the baby from his wife’s arms and squeezed that baby as he gave it kisses. “Look at you! I missed you!”

He then handed the baby to the teenager and gathered his wife into his arms for a kiss. Passionately, he said, “My darling, I’m so happy to be back with you! I’ve missed you!”

The younger man who had gotten off the plane with the husband witnessed this and asked, “How long have you been married?”

“Twelve years,” was the reply.

“And how long have you been gone?” the young man asked.

“Two whole days,” the man replied.

The young man marveled, then said, “I’m meeting my fiancé here. I hope that when we’ve been married for twelve years, I am just as passionate for her as you are with your family.”

The husband looked him square in the eye and said, “No, son. Don’t hope. Just do it.”
