Subject: A Review of Circumstance Chapter 2 A review of circumstance -2 You never knew what time an Emergency Doctor would get home; it was usually later rather than earlier. And I often didn’t hear him come him. He almost never rang to say he was going to be late; why should he ring me his younger brother? Sometimes we didn’t see each other for days. He would come in late and leave early. Or would be asleep when I was back from school. And we all knew to let him get his rest. We tried to eat together, whoever was there, between 6.30 and 7.30, but we seldom managed to get the whole four of us there together. We had managed it last night when the `great confrontation’ had happened, it had not been particularly planned. In fact it had been pretty enjoyable just to talk about what we had been doing. A lot of stuff had come out which we just didn’t know about each other. I had prattled on about ballet because I had been in two big productions and had had a minor solo role which had been well-reviewed. I was aware that Dad was looking puzzled, I took this to be because he really hadn’t had much time pay attention. I think he had never been to any of my major performances, so he wasn’t aware of what level I was now performing. Dad himself, as a community Doctor was escort bayan directing Rural Programs over a huge region, trying to grow systems which would encourage preventative health measures. We knew little of the important stuff he was doing. Todd was at the absolute coalface, and we knew that our brother and son was really taking `the bit between his teeth’. Everyday he was dealing with blood, sweat and tears. And he was good at it. And, indeed we were proud of him. It was Paul who struggled a bit to tell us what he was doing . He was discovering that in the psychiatric sciences he was energised. Curiously, Dad just didn’t seem to get this. And the rest is legend. -ooOoo- Maybe tonight would be different. Paul and I had got ourselves back together when Dad blew in. “Hey guys can we have dinner soon? I have to go to the country tonight.” Paul and I looked at each other and smirked. “We are on top of it. But I don’t know if Todd will be with us.” “O yes I will, ” the back door flew open, and both Paul and I flew over to him and embraced him. Brothers three. “You must be stuffed,” I said. “Oh yes, I am but let me get a shower, and then I have some stuffing to do!!” Paul and I cracked up. I don’t know that Dad had a clue about what was going on. To be fair kocaeli escort bayan Paul and I put on a pretty good Italian Feast. Artichokes, olives , garlic bread, home made pesto ( I refuse to say whether or not the pesto was `cum-enriched’) but both Todd and Dad thought it was great. Let’s just say it all hit the spot. The great thing about the dinner was that we were all there, and we spent most of the time talking with Dad about what he was doing. I was struck that we had never really listened to Dad. He told us about how important it was to get poor people vaccinated, and to make sure about how seven and eight year olds got their eyes and ears checked. This went straight to their educational advantage. “If you can’t see properly and you can’t hear properly, then you’re fucked!” he said. We were a little shocked to hear him speak this way. We had never heard him swear. There was a a silence as we took in how importantly he took this work, and how our relationships were shifting. “And I want to say, ” he said, “particularly to you Steph, and then to you Paul,” he fell silent and continued, ” I am a total and utter dick.” Paul,Todd and I were somewhat taken aback. Our dad had never betrayed a weakness. “I want you to pursue kocaeli escort your passion, Steph. I want you to go to Budapest Paul. I want you Jeremy, to be the best Emergency doctor there has ever been.” He threw his arms around all three of us, and we were flooded with tears. This was such a gift. “I love you all,” he kissed each one of us as intimately as he could. “I love you all” We all broke apart, none of us feeling embarrassed, but all of us full of emotion. “I have to go for a week or so, but I’m coming back to my three beautiful sons.” We broke the hold and Dad kissed each one of us on the lips.Not deeply, but with sensitivity. Wow, I had a deep feeling my Dad loved me. “I have to go ,”Dad said, “I’ll be back at the weekend” We watched him go. Paul, Todd and I looked at each other and shrugged. “I noticed Todd,” I said pausing for effect, “that he said `I want you Jeremy to be the best doctor that has ever been'” I smirked at him and Paul let out a guffaw. “So does Dad know you as Jeremy?” Hope you enjoy this story.
