A friend once graciously invited me to a dinner that he was hosting for people from his work. He had encouraged everyone to bring their children.


All during the mealtime one of my friend’s co-worker’s four-year-old daughter stared at him unceasingly. In fact, she was staring at him so hard she could hardly eat her food.


My friend checked his tie, felt his face for food, patted his hair in place, and a myriad assortment of other things, but nothing stopped her from staring at him. He tried his best to just ignore her but finally it was too much for him.


“Why are you staring at me?” he finally asked her.


Everyone had noticed her behavior and the table went quiet to hear her response.


The little girl replied “I just want to see how you drink like a fish!”
