Mall Food Court Story

I took my dad to the mall the other day to buy him a pair of shoes (he is 92). We decided to grab a bite at the food court. I noticed he was watching a teenager sitting near him.  The teenager had spiked hair in all different colors: green, red, orange & blue. My dad kept staring at him.  The teenager would look and find him staring every time. When the teenager finally had enough, he sarcastically asked, "What's the matter old man, never done anything crazy in your life?" Knowing my dad, I quickly swallowed my food so that I would not choke on his response, knowing he would have a good one, and in classic style he did not bat an eye in his response.

"Got drunk once, and had sex with a peacock.  I was just wondering if you were my son."
