Another Chapter in The Life of My Father

So my father is having a deep and serious personal crisis, which is unrelated to the Snape stickers.

It went like this:

Daddy: (to me and my mother) I have a problem. And I wanted you guys' advice because it's something I've never experienced but I'm sure both of you have experienced it many times.

Tea: Did you get your period?

Daddy: Oh no, I'm already a woman. Ask your mother.

Mommy: Well, you sure act raggy.

Tea: So what's the problem?

Daddy: Well, next week, the movie of Hannibal Rising comes out, and I think this is the first time in my life that I'm going to see a movie after reading the book.

Tea: What about The Da Vinci Code?

Daddy: Did you buy me the DVD for Christmas? Because I still haven't seen it.

Tea: Yes, it's under the shirts you still haven't worn. So what's the problem?

Daddy: Well, I read the book, and you know how when you read a book, your imagination fills things in so you have a very specific idea of how to picture them?

Tea & Mommy: Ye-es?

Daddy: I am pretty sure that the movie is going to be different from how I imagined the book while I was reading it. How do you...you know, deal with that?
