Pull My Finger
“Pull my finger” said dad
“No” replied the son
“Go on , it’s a surprise”
“Dad, I’m thirteen. It isn’t even funny anymore”
“Go on, humour your old man”
“Come on for your dear old dad’s sake. It’s been brewin’ for a while”
The son knew he would never get to fully enjoy the television show he was watching unless he complied with this age old ritual.
The son took his father’s finger and in a moment of cheekiness decided to push instead of pull.
The last thing the son remembers of his father was the look of shock and pain seconds before he exploded.
