Most of us have titles, nay, I’d say that all of us have titles. In polite society titles are necessary. For example, my least favorite titles (when applied to me) are “Mr.” or “Sir”. You see, I used to be “man” and sometimes even “dude”. When did I become a “Sir”?
As I said, I don’t like those titles.
Anyway, I have some other titles too. Because of my academic preparation, I am “Dr.” and because of my work, I am “Professor”; these ones I like. But as proud as I am of them, and as hard as I worked to deserve them, are not my favorite titles.
My favorite titles were endowed to me by three very special people in my life: my daughter and my boys:
Not bad, huh?
My daughter calls me “Papi”, which translates as “Daddy”. My boys call me “Papá”, which means “Dad”. And those are my favorite titles because of what they represent. When my children call me by any of those names, they are not just names. They imply that the person who is worthy of those titles will always have their back, will always love them unconditionally, and would gladly give his life for them.
They are wonderful titles, and every single day, I do my best to become a better man and I work very hard to deserve them. As the saying goes, virtually every man can become a father; fewer of us get to be a daddy or a dad.
Oh, and these titles also give me the right and pleasure of being silly with them…
