—Bingo. There's the problem … the sink's seal has worn through. Hey, son. Help your old man out and grab my caulk.
—Here you go, pops.
—No no, son. I said grab my caulk, not grab my chalk. The caulk goes between the sink and the counter to keep the water from leaking through, and the multi-colored chalk goes in your father's hair to keep me feeling youthful and relevant.
—But why do you need chalk for your hair, daddy?
—Well, son. As a man gets older, his hair starts to turn gray. When this happens, his thoughts turn inward, and he starts contemplating his own mortality. I'd rather not think about my inevitable demise, so I cover the gray with pinks, lavenders, and greens. This particular hair chalk deal came with 24 assorted colors. Sure, it won't shield me from death's icy grip, but these vibrant hues will help mask my crippling fear of my accelerating decay.
—Does the chalk stay in long?
—It's not permanent, son. Of course, nothing in this world is. Just look at mommy and me … we were supposed to last forever, but now she's living in Colorado with your uncle Robbie. Fortunately, I can wash out my hair chalk without hiring a divorce lawyer and hiding my old record collection.
—Okay, dad. I'll go grab your caulk. Then is okay if I ride over to Devin's to play Madden?
—Go on ahead to Devin's, son. I'll grab my own caulk.
—Thanks, dad. I'll be back before dinner.
—And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon…
