I opened it and he said, “My daughter came back home crying and penniless because of you!”
“Sir?” I asked.
“When you told me she was old enough to move out of our house, I was skeptical…”
“But you talked to me man to man, looked me in the eye and told me you would take care of her!”
“And you promised me that if she moved in with you and took care of the house she could quit her job and you would cover her weekly income!”
“Yes sir, but I believe this is simple misunderstanding. When I said that, it was two words, not one.”
The nurse tells my I may be transferred from the ICU next Wednesday.
