Charlie wants to join the circus
Charlie wants to join the circus. He wants to be a tight rope walker. I suppose I should let him.
I don’t have any children. I never married and I was fixed as a young kitten. I was raised by a single mother. Her husband, my father, abandoned my mother after she became pregnant with me and my sister. We were taken to a shelter and raised there until we could find families that needed a cat to run their lives.
I think of Charlie as my son. I want the best for him.
My vice-president, Charlie, is Manager of Proper Dishwasher Loading Techniques. He does a good job making sure the cups and plates are loaded properly. He jumps in the bottom of the dishwasher often when the bottom drawer is pulled out to inspect my kitchen staff’s work. But he prefers to practice tightrope walking. At our weekly managers meeting, he gave his two weeks notice. I will have to find a replacement to manage the loading of the dishwasher.
I will write a letter to Barnum and Bailey today. I want Charlie to have the life he wants.
Do you encourage your children to follow their dreams?
