I’m going to break with tradition today. Today’s blogpost is dedicated to my Dad.
I have an iPad on its last legs, plugged it in to transfer old photos and whatnot off of it. I found this gem from last Thanksgiving.
The discussion went like this.
Dad: I’m going to get this for Eliza.
Me: No you’re not.
Dad: Yeah. She’d like this. She needs this.
Me: No. It’s too big to live in our house.
Dad: I’m going to get this for her.
Dad: Yeah. Then I going cut the back open, get inside it, and then scare the shit out of her!
Dad: Too scary?
Me: No. I’m all for that part. It’s just that you’re not tall enough to fill it out.
Dad: Huh…(looks the bear up and down slowly)…huh…Well…huh…(keeps sizing it up with serious look on his face). Well…Shit.
I miss your irreverent sense of humor. I love you, Dad. I miss you.
