My readers know that I have recently been knighted and also bestowed with a PhD.
These two dubious honours pale in comparison to what I was called earlier today.
Let me explain.
My dear friend KD sent me these pictures to share his joy in seeing his childhood friends having also grown old just like he and I have.
I responded that I am a comic figure anyway in real life, and shared with him the fact that some friends and nephews call me Gandalf.
And here is the punchline. He responded with “Yes, you have always shown to be avuncular.” I am reasonably sure that I never was with him but, perhaps he was referring to my relationship with his impish son.
What do you think?
