Life truly is made out of special moments, special
details. Many times it is the little
things that make a difference.
Now with the craze of getting organized for our back to school
wonderful memory came to me:
When we were in school, I was having a hard time with one of
my classes. My entire school year was pending on this one final test of the
To give me a push of self confidence, my dad gave me a small
candy, and told me it was a magic one. So,
I had nothing to worry about because I was going to Ace the test. Honestly, it
was a stretch as everyone was pretty concerned about the outcome of the
test. It really didn’t seem I had much
of a chance. I was failing miserably
this class, understood little about it despite the tutors and help I was
Dad was very mysterious about the candy. He made sure I couldn’t see it, couldn’t
smell it or feel it until it was in my mouth.
After two very long and agonizing weeks the results came in.
To everyone’s surprise (me most of all) I had passed with flying colors!
It was welcomed news and a big relief J
Everyone was amazed. My friends started asking me how I had
done it. Word went around that it had
been my magical candy.
From then on, every time a hard test was upon us, we would
turn to Dad for our piece of magical candy.
Dad would prescribe larger doses from time to time, specially when we
started with physics and calculus classes.
This went on until the day we graduated high school.
His back to school preparations started in June. His trick was his travels, which allowed him
access to candies we wouldn’t recognize.
That is why we were never able to figure out what the magic really
was. Today I know the magic was his love
Good thing we never uncovered the truth because we believed
in the magic candy on many tests!
As my little one readies to take on his academia life, I will
find a tradition of our own. Can’t wait!
