Hi all! Happy Sunday and Father's Day! I'm still in Alabama and am a little pouty not to be near my sweet daddy today.
Here's us holding it down:
"Kings of the castle. Kings of the castle"
A more recent gem:
He's not a big whore for the camera. Nugget and I will ham it up any day.
Here are some of my favorite things about myself that I think I can attribute to him:
- Humor. We're both known for being jokesters, and I love it (though my mom is a witty son of a gun herself).
- Nerdiness. We both enjoy a really strange academic tangent (Exhibit A: space addiction).
- Extrovertedness. We both will speak to anyone. He's the one that taught me how to crack jokes with every random person I interact with -- a thing that humiliated me as a teen and kind of now humiliates the people around me.
- Giving nature in relationships. I watched him selflessly serve three women all my life. Bless his heart, he's given every cent, ounce of patience and every bit of his time to take care of us. I'm finding in my relationships I try to give and give like that too. I'll never be able to touch his gifts on this front.
I'm sure I'll have a crisis and need him soon. He's always there for me and Nugget. He entertains all my random inquiries like a champ. Does there ever come a day when Dad isn't the supreme expert on everything? I don't see that happening. I'm sure he's sick of it, but this has always been my mantra:
I'm a lucky one. I know so many people who have crappy dads. Mine is one of the best around! I pity the man who wants to marry me one day and try fill those shoes. I wish I was home making him pies today. He's the best person to bake for.
