Children should be seen and not hurt (3)

In the previous retrievia I mentioned the story of the man who had 5 daughters before being blessed with a son.

(Yes, yes, yes –the 5 daughters are also blessings; I didn’t imply otherwise, did I?).

Anyway to follow up on this story:
The grandfather came along to the hospital’s maternity ward to see his new grandson. The old man took photos of the infant from this angle, from that angle, etc. He then took photos of the proud parents holding the baby boy from this angle, from that angle, etc. He crouched down to take a photo; he stood up on a chair to take another photo, etc. Oh, he was just so excited.

Just at the point where he was on the chair taking another photo, the matron (head nurse) of the maternity ward came in. She smiled kindly at the grey-haired old man standing up on the chair, camera in hand.

Matron: Ah, sir. You must be the proud grandfather.

Old man: Yes, I am.

Matron: Bet you are very happy!

Old man: Yes, I am.

Matron: Because it’s your first grandson?

Old man: No. Because it’s my first digital camera!
