Where is Dad?

A man and his wife received a letter from their son who went to study overseas:

My beloved Parents,

I miss you so much. I don’t know when I’m coming home, but it seems not anytime soon. It breaks my heart to think that by the time I get back you’ll be too old. So enclosed you will find a bottle of a magic drink I have invented. It will make you young, so when I return you’ll be the same age as I left you.

NOTE: “Please take only one drop”

So they opened the envelope and in it there is a bottle with a purple color drink.

The husband looks at the wife and says: “You go first.” (typical of men!)

So the wife opens the bottle and takes a drop, there after the husband follows. Indeed they do turn 10 years younger.

Years later the son returns home to find her mother young and beautiful, carrying a baby on her back. 

The mother proceeds to tell her son how the magic drink worked and made her look young.

The son is delighted and asks about his father.

“Your father? Hmmm, my child, your father was so jealous that I was young and beautiful so he drank the whole bottle.”

“So where is he?”

“Oh, that’s him I have on my back.!!!

    The lesson to learn from this joke is: when you take medicines, stay strictly within the prescribed dosage. You run the risk of terrible side effects if you overdose yourself.
    Thanks Sara for the meaningful joke.

    Competition, comparison and envy dwarfs the individual.

      Sonah thanks for bringing out the real lesson of the story in a metaphorical way.

    Dear Sara and All: Thanks very much for providing a wonderful joke. We should take this as a simple but very interesting joke. There is no medicine invented so far in the world that can reduce the age of the human being. Just try enjoying the joke and please do not think any medicine has the power to reduce the age and therefore, we shouldn’t blame the husband. Think of a situation where the husband took a drop of medicine becoming 10 years younger and on the other hand the mother took the rest, you would see that the father takes the baby girl in his lap. The son would ask where is my mom?

      It was only a joke

      • fateen August 28, 2012 at 1:38 PM #

        Dear Aloo2,

        Thanks for you comments. I wrote this on 12 June 2012 clearly specifying everybody to take this story as a simple joke. Today the 28th August 2012, you have commented it as “Silly, It was only a joke”. What is the difference between my comment and your comment. Are you sleeping for the last two month? and suddenly you woke up and made such derogatory comments.

        I am little uncomfortable about your comments and I wounder whether you have really carefully read each of the words in the sentences. Before you make a derogatory comment, may I suggest you to read it carefully and make a valid and reliable comments.

        Thanks for your understanding,
        (Dr. Md Golam Mostafa)
