It actually embarrasses me that anyone would compliment me on something that I feel all right thinking people carry out .automatically to the best of their ability.
Today we had a birthday celebration for one of my son-in laws. Somehow the word had got round that yours truly wasn’t the lazy bugger that they all thought. They couldn’t believe that I actually walk up to the shop to buy a paper. No that was made up. They actually were impressed with what I’d done. However where had they got the info from?
It turned out that my eldest daughter had told her 3 year old son what had happened. (Who told her?) The boy had quite seriously asked his dad the following.
“Daddy. Granddad saved someone’s life. Does that make him a super hero?”Of course that was put on daddy's face book page and excited interest in this old fogey.
Remind me not to walk up and get the paper in future.
Seriously though, if you get a chance to attend a first aid course, Go for it.
