Last night, after dinner, I was in the livingroom playing one of my guitars - the V-bass that I have done a lot of work on recently. Everyone else was in the room too, watching TV, doing homework, etc.
The boy who is living with us at the moment looked at me.
"Is that your favourite guitar?"
"Hard to say. Each one is good at some things and not so good at other things."
My eldest son then chipped in.
"It's like trying to choose a favourite child, isn't it?"
My reply was instant.
" Nah, that's EASY!"
The looks on their faces was priceless! Will they spend the rest of their lives wondering if I do have a favourite and if so which it is? No, I don't think so, not really.
