He decided to break the good news to his dad in a pleasant way. He decided to surprise him at work to experience his reaction in person. As he walked into his dad’s workplace, a few colleagues who knew about his accomplishment wished him well. As he headed over to find his dad, he couldn’t contain the joy and excitement. “Ron, there’s someone here to see you,” the dad’s colleagues yelled in excitement to see the surprise unfold. Robert walked into different rooms and through corridors until he figured out where his dad was. Ron walked into the room where his dad was with the Washington Nationals cap on his head. He walked in casually and said, “Hey, what’s up?” His dad greeted him too, but he failed to see the cap.

Robert took out another Washington Nationals cap from his pocket and walked over to his dad. “What happened?” the dad asked, still not realizing what the cap read. Robert gave him a relieving nod and his dad let out the biggest smile. “Oh my gosh! Congratulations, son!” he said, getting in to give his son a big hug. As Robert held on to his dad, his dad got emotional and began to cry with joy and pride. It was clear that he was simply grateful and proud of his boy’s achievement. He looked over at Robert with tears in his eyes and found his son putting the cap on his head. “Are you kidding me?” he asked with tears still flowing. “That’s awesome. I’m proud of you,” the dad said.
