Missed Opportunity ?

A few years ago at the annual book fair at BMICH, I saw a small girl browsing through lots of books and finally settled for a translation of one the famous Russian writers of yesteryears.

She turned to her parents with pleading eyes.

Mumbling something to her ears, parents put the book back down gently on the heap and ushered the pleading girl away from the counters.

I asked my wife, “Should I give her some money or buy her that book”?

Do not embarrass the family and they may not even like it”, my wife warned me.
