It makes me literally LOL when I see Essays on Smpathy. A genius idea to use a simple, short scene to rise some real questions: what's the purpose to give a gift to our parents? To make them happy? Or want to tell them something? And we preconceive our parents too, just like they preconceive us.
In the end I pick up My Cute Neighbour. It's my father's birthday and I want him to be happy. Essays on Smpathy may be an alternative choice if it is not a birthday XD
