Big Ambitions for My Son

My wife took our 18-month old son to the doctor today, and he had to get a few shots. She told me he got so worked up after each shot that, prior to screaming out loud, he unleashed a long, intense, silent scream. He’s very good at them. They’re quite dramatic!

My hope is that he will one day unseat my favorite actor, Al Pacino, for belting out a breathtaking (bad pun) silent scream in the most dramatic scene in cinematic history.

The good news is that his tears are dry, he’s already forgotten about his doctor visit, and he’s back to happily drawing on our kitchen wall…with an ink pen.
