11am Sunday, local neighborhood park playground equipment.
Dad is on the floor doing push ups.
Kids sit quietly by watching.
Dad leaps up, jumps in a swing and gleefully pushes himself back and forth.
Dad has what looks suspiciously like a cigarette or Chupa Chup hanging out of his mouth.
Kids stare off into space bored.
Possible Explanation of the Nation
a) – Dad is in touch with his inner child. His kids are geniuses and this type of behaviour is just intolerable.
b) – Dad read somewhere that exercise counter balances the effects of smoking. His kids are geniuses and know if they wait five minutes he’ll be worn out.
c) – Dad just got back from a rave and his happy pills haven’t worn off yet. The kids have been there four hours already and they’re worn out.
