as retold by Syahrizal
One Sunday morning Benny burst into the living room
and said, "Dad! Mom! I have some great news for you!
I am getting married to the most beautiful girl in town. She
lives a block away and her name is Susan.
After dinner, Benny's dad took him aside,
"Son, I have to talk with you. Look at your mother,
Benny. She and I have been married 30 years.
She's a wonderful wife and mother, but, she has
never offered much excitement in the bedroom, so ... I used to
fool around with women a lot. Susan is actually your half sister,
and I'm afraid you can't marry her."
Benny was broken-hearted. After eight months he eventually
started dating girls again.
A year later he came home and very proudly announced, "Mom, Dad .
.. Dianne said yes! We're getting married in June." Again his father
insisted on another private conversation and broke the sad news.
"Dianne is your half sister too, Benny. I'm awfully sorry about this."
Benny was livid! He finally decided to go to his mother with the
news his father had shared.
"Dad has done so much harm. I guess I'm never going to get
married," he complained. "Every time I fall in love,
Dad tells me the girl is my half sister."
"Heh heh," his mother chuckled, shaking her head, "Don't pay
any attention to what he says. He's not really your father."
