I’m Better Than I Looked

Last weekend I travelled from Melbourne to Nowra for my sister’s wedding.
As the designated passenger I received a phone call. The news was my dad had fallen and was now in hospital. As I result my brother and sister in law altered course to see him. When we arrived Dad (in his eighties) looked like he had been fifteen rounds with Mike Tyson (and had won)! I was last to see him. And I asked how he was. His laconic reply, “Better than I look”. Then he said, “Andrew, I’ve been thinking about you and I’m worried (I recently lost my job). How are you?”. Yes better than he looked!
