While small son is resting on his laurels (ironically said), and waiting to do yet another re-write of his latest exams, my daughter sent me this e-mail which is going the rounds. I think she means to console me with the idea that small son may be on the right track - spending most of his spare time at the gym..... Meanwhile, his hard-working brother-in-law has taken pity on him and offered him a menial job in his transport company, starting Monday. Small son is ecstatic (job fallen in his lap) but his father and I take a gloomier view. The best outcome we can think of is that small son will have to knuckle down to a regular job at least for a while, and maybe it will sink in how hard and how many long hours one has to work in today's world in order to put bread on the table for a family or at least to pay one's own way.
