My dad is the funniest man I know. He has a dry sense of humor. He has a way with adjectives. The combination leaves you wondering what is going to come out of his mouth next. This entertains me.
I asked my dad a few random questions about raising two beautiful, funny, modest daughters for Father's Day.
(Me) Describe a moment in your life where you wouldn't have thought twice about selling your daughters to the circus or a band of gypsies.
(Dad) Dinner time was occasionally challenging.
(Me) Descibe some of the proudest moments for you as a father.
(Dad) High School graduations,college graduations, mary in the school play, trying to learn to pitch at high school level, basketball games, waterspouts where danger level far exceeded other weenie kids (tubing for example).
(Me) What advice do you have for new dads?
(Dad) Embrace the event and enjoy every advancement and resign yourself to a condensed leisure schedule.
(Me) What do you like best about being a bop bop (grandfather)?
(Dad) Bopsters are critical because they can try to teach the kid big words, tell them no, watch the grandchild grow quickly, no involvement in the changing diaper process, and watch the parents enjoy their creation.
(Me) What does your perfect Father's Day look like?
(Dad) Perfect fathers day is all staff on hand to enjoy each others company and joyously do whatever chore has been assigned, the spirit of volunteerism lifts the fathers spirit. whether the chore is completed is not critical. participation is the key as well as beer.
Our chore, by the way, was putting on a new roof. This activity began in early May and was completed today by both Son's-in-Law. Dad was very grateful.
I'm a believer that the greatest gift we can give each other is time. Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there! And a thank you to my dad for being a wonderful father.
