Nikita Reiskowitz was a shallow man. He had made no secret of this either. Indeed, when talking to his son’s elementary school teacher, he specifically reminded her of this fact. She asked him to repeat. “I have few interests that go deep enough to qualify as constructs of a personality. I am not fazed by your so-called issues. And I certainly do not believe my son needs an education of the sorts you are proposing.” Resulting from this discourse were special support for Reiskowitz junior in school and extracurricular care taken by his concerned teacher. “You see, son, it is all a matter of perception,” Nikita lectured afterwards, and his son nodded gravely. Oh, the lessons he could learn from his father!
