Funny real life situations (A short story)
Children give new perspectives to our (adults) way of thinking, which defies our thought process while helps us understand how children think.
A child being attentive to every word spoken tries to understand what his parents are speaking to each other or are discussing, and then make his own amusing and genuine assessment of the situations which are loaded with innocence and humor.
I have created a fictional humorous situation to show case the child’s intelligence and his attentiveness.
Here it goes.
A very common discussion in the course of time in any family life is birth and death of relatives.
A close relative had died, and we were aware of the immediate relatives and their financial background and were discussing about it never assuming what's going to happen, while we were going to attend it.
We reached for mourning and inquired about the cause of death etc. and after we finished, our 9 yr old also repeated the same questions to our aunt.
He got answers to all his questions, explaining how good the departed soul was and very helpful etc., and without hesitation he went ahead and asked.
"Aunty, how much money uncle had, before he died?" shocked to hear it; she stopped crying for a second, but got her balance back to get shocked again.
"Aunty, has he left anything for you. Do not cry if he has left money."
