Miro is trouble. But he does have incredible concentration powers and patience. For instance, he loves to lineup these little penguins at least 3 times a day and it's a sight to behold. He definitely didn't get that from me. The only time I'm patient is while having dump. He has the makings of a great class monitor and cricket captain. His field placements will be immaculate. Tons better than Dhoni I tell you.
Now, back to these tiny penguins. They have a lot in common with my sons. For instance, I love all of them equally, just like I love both my boys equally. I'm obsessed by them, just like my boys. If they're not with me, I constantly think about their whereabouts, just like my boys. I go to great lengths to ensure I don't misplace them, just like my boys. I bath them together with my boys. The fact that I've lost 3 penguins is a little worrying mind you.
Miro is also my personal trainer. During the day, I do pushups with him on my back. I manage about 50.....Ok, that's a half truth. I manage 25 but they are proper pushups I tell you! But as soon as I collapse, he screams - 'MORE MORE MORE MORE', like a lunatic. I dread to think what he would say if he had a larger, more vulgar vocabulary. I push myself to do another 10....ok, another half truth. I do another 5ish. He screams. I do a few more. By this time, I'm ready to shit myself. Then, Tino jumps on. Game over! Can you imagine how funny it'll be if I take him to the gym one day. The little laloo, tottering about, telling all the meatheads - 'MORE MORE MORE MORE!!!'
Tell me honestly...how many of you guys occasionally pickup one of your wife's magazines to gawk at the pretty ladies? I'll admit it, I do it sometimes. So Tino clocked me instantly and said - 'daddy, that's a girl's book. What are you doing?' Busted!!
