Bedtime Stories

Here is a brief childhood tidbit. This is pretty obviously something I've been told, rather than something I actually remember.

When I was born, my father worked during the day and went to college at night. He knew it was good to read to his children, but between work and school, he didn't have a lot of free time. He figured that we were too young to really understand what he was reading, so Dad read to my brother and me from his textbooks. My brother is a year and a half older than I am, so he would have gotten mathematics books, while my bedtime stories came from things like Intro to Electronics and Principles of Cost Accounting for Engineers.

This may or may not have had some influence on our adult lives. This entry was originally posted at https://fauxklore.dreamwidth.org/480902.html. Please comment there using OpenID.
