K2 and his dad

K2's father's post:

"Sorry, I can't spend time with you right now. I'm in a meeting for the next 5 hours".
"5 HOURS!?!?" K2 looked stunned and utterly dismayed for a few moments, then walked away.

He returned 10 minutes later with a piece of paper. "Here, keep this. Don't lose it. Everyone gets a number. It's for a raffle. If you win your prize is written on the inside."

The number 15 was written on the outside of the folded piece of paper. He gave one to his sister and his mother as well, and kept one for himself.

A few minutes later he called out the winning numbers. Lucky us, all of our numbers were called. I unfolded my piece of paper to reveal my prize: "you get a free day off from work". God, I feel low!
