A father stork and his son are sitting in their nest when the son asks where his mother had gone.

“Don’t worry, son, you mom will be back – she’s just delivering babies to people and making them happy.”

“Delivering babies?” the son asks.

“That’s right,” the father replies, “that’s our job.”

“Wow! I want to do that!” the son says.

The next night it’s the father’s turn to make deliveries.

“Is Dad delivering babies too?” the son asks his mother.

“That’s right,” his mom replies. “He’s bringing new joy to mommies and daddies.”

“I want to do that!” the son says.

The next day the father and mother discuss it and decide the son can make a delivery.

“We’re going to let you try,” the father says to his son. “This is what you do. The baby will be wrapped in cloth. Hold the cloth in your beak like this. Then you just deliver it to the proper location. Can you do that?”

“Sure!” the son says. So his parents send him on his way.

But when the son hasn’t returned after several hours the parents start getting worried. Eventually he arrives back.

“What took you so long?” his mother demands. “Did you make the delivery?”

“Yes,” the son replies. “Sorry I took so long. I was just having some fun scaring teenagers at a matric dance.”
