IN GOOD HUMOR
If the toddy shop closed unusually late at night, he would sleep there instead of returning home. Having slept many a night in the cold as a wandering dervish, he knew the pain of being homeless and sleeping on the streets. If he saw any poor person shivering in the cold, he would inevitably give away his own blanket to him.
This happened often, and one day Shireen remarked, "If we had collected the amount
of blankets Sherog has given away, instead of a toddy shop we could have opened a blanket
shop by now." Seeing their father's reaction to their mother's remark, the children
laughed, and the remark was taken in good humor.
