I Want To Be A TV

ESSAY FROM A CHILD

A teacher from Primary School asks her students to write an essay about what
they would like God to do for them...

At the end of the day while marking the essays, she read one that made her very
emotional.

Her husband, that had just walked in saw her crying and asked her:
- What happened?

She answered - Read this. Its one of my students essays.

Oh God, tonight I ask you something very special:

Make me into a television.

I want to take its place. Live like the TV in my house. Have my own special
place, and have my family around ME.

To be taken seriously when I talk....

I want to be the Center of attention and be heard without interruptions or
questions.

I want to receive the same special care that the TV receives when it is not
working.

Have the company of my dad when he arrives home from work, even when he is
tired.

And I want my mom to want me when she is sad and upset, instead of ignoring
me... and... I want my brothers to fight to be with me... I want to feel that
family just leaves everything aside, every now and then, just to spend some
time with me.

And last but not least make it that I can make them all happy and entertain
them...

God I dont ask you for much... I just want to live like every TV.

At that moment the husband said: - My God, poor kid. What horrible parents!

She looked up at him and said: That essay is our son!!!

So true isnt it?

The culprit isn't the tv anymore in our household. It's the......laptops and the PC! That child will want to be one of them in my house.
