The Benefits of Being a Pirate

My husband got home a few minutes ago and my son (4 years old) excitedly ran to meet him at the top of the stairs. My son said, "Daddy, would you like to join my pirate ship?" My husband, always the joker, said, "But I already have a job - I'm a pharmacist!" My son persisted stating that daddy was already done being a pharmacist for the day...now it was time to be a pirate. When my husband questionned how much being a pirate pays, my son just grabbed his hand and started pulling my husband towards the pirate ship in his room, exclaiming,

"Daddy, you get to spend time with me!".

May we all recognize such wisdom in our own days.
