Whenever I've had to be on a area where talking has been an issue I had always been out of it very easy, being that my Father was my teacher in the speech subject, giving opinions wherever or whatever the topic was, somehow, for some reason I always had a saying, and no just any kind of saying, it was a saying with a lot of sense, and very convinced that I knew what I was talking about, and everything based on whatever the case was, for instances there was an occasion when Luis (one of my best friends) and I were on our way back home from school, and in order to do that we had to take two buses, and in that time we had already spent half of our bus fare, we had only enough money to pay for the second bus fare, so, we decided to use our finger, (no, no the middle finger) we did two thumbs up!! and, of course, (good things happen to good people) in not time we got a ride.
I told him that, not because he was giving his son everything he wanted that would guarantee good behavior, no, it was more like giving him to much power, since he can have whatever he wanted without doing anything and carrying with him the "promise" that he will behave without doing it, well everything was so easy for him, so he (the taxi guy) had to come out with a different strategy, with a different way of doing things, for instances, stop buying his son everything, and make him understand, and learn, and earn, all those things that he had been getting for granted, so that way he could see that nothing is easy, or at least not as easy as he thought it was for him, I told him that in my opinion he should have to get his son to learn the art of getting and giving back, that if his son wanted something, he had to actually give something as a way to show appreciation for what is done, or for what it was given to him, and it has to be a tangible, or intangible, but it has to be done at the same time, or during the time that he as a father had previously set. After I had finished saying all that, he thank me, and then he looked at my friend Luis, who was sitting next to me in the car front seat, and asked him, "and you, what's your opinion in the matter?'' to what Luis said, "the same as him" (!!) and he asked him, "what?, do you think the same way ?, I don't think so, you had to have something to say".
And with that I'm finishing this story, and remember, whenever you are asked to give your opinion in any matter, issue, topic (as long as is not religion, nor politics) or whatever the case is, always pay a lot of attention to what you're being told, because, sometimes when you less expected, your opinion would make an impression and will give some kind of peace of mind to somebody that you don't even know, or whenever you trying to get a free ride home, just make sure that you don't ask to a taxi!. Now lets keep it in the same line, eat your vegetables, add some protein, eggs and what not, and drink a lot of water and you all read me later, over n' out.
