Prophesy Meets Vow
Once upon a time, a Prophet intoned, “I foresee that you will become a Conservative in your old age.”
His Son retorted, “If so, then it shall be on my own terms.”
Decades later, the Prophet’s Son recalled this exchange, and he saw that his father’s cynical prophesy and his own defiant vow had both come true.
Thus his father trained him.
Moral: Teach your children well.
