For me stories were real. I indulge into them. I still to this day enjoy reading and listen to the stories. However, one story that my father will tell few times and I would neither like nor connect with it. Only thing is that being it a story, I will still stay quiet and try to go through the time to get the story completed. And I did not tell you the environment of this story. My father has 2 full time jobs to support our family. And I vividly remember how much incredibly tired he will get after the 2nd job and all he could is to have dinner and try to go to sleep. And here I was strongly committed to listen to a story from my father.
