“Grand Pa” the kids chime,”tell us a story ”

 

“but i am tired,” i protest

 

“Grandpa, pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaasssssssse” they implore adoringly

 

“how can i say no ? ” i cave in with a smile on my face

 

“yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah,” they scream excitedly

 

“In my day , ” i begin “we did not need permission to walk on the streets.”

 

They look at me with utter shock!!

 

“I used to get up , and  if the weather was right and my mood was good, i would hike it to my office. No permits. No calls. No nothing. Just hike it -”

 

But before i could continue my story , i hear a knock on the door.

 

“Mzee,” the burly apologetic policeman says when the robot opens, “I am sorry but i have to arrest you”

 

“Why ?” i ask .

 

“You are not allowed to tell stories to your grandkids without permission!”
