My dad. So many things I can say about my dad. He’s always been there and always fought for me. He’s made me laugh, and of course, he’s made me cry (when i was a little girl and he would say no!) Today, he called me up. I said “hello” and he launched into this long winded story. When he finally stopped I said “Happy Father’s Day by the way.” His response: ” Yea. so i was thinking.. oh. Thanks. so I was thinking…….” ahhhh Dad. Or his infamous line that our family will never forget EVER…we were in a drive through (KFC or some chicken place).
Lady taking our order asks my dad “French Fries or Potatos?”
My dads response “Yes please.”
Lady: “Um French Fries OR potatoes?”
Dad “Yes please.”
Kids from backseat and Mom in Front “WHICH ONE DAD?!! ONE OR THE OTHER!! French fries OOOORRRR potatoes!!!!!!”
Dad: “Oh, potatoes”(while driving to the window) “i can’t understand what they say in those stupid things always crackling…..”
Or the fact that he REFUSED to get new glasses for so long because he didn’t want tri-focals. Bifocals were bad enough for him. He couldn’t handle the trifocals. So instead, he has his bifocals, and then two different pairs of reading glasses that he puts on OVER his bifocals. Occassionally a magnifying glass…….. oy vey…….. Finally, I don’t know who did it, but one of us kids, or even mom, convinced him that he had to simplify and just break down and get the new glasses. But, it was quite a sight.
When he got his first cell phone that could take, send, and receive pictures (about 6 months ago), HOLY COW! THAT was hilarious. The puppy I gave him for Christmas became the object of all the photos. However, I would send him photos and he would always say “I can’t see what it is Chris, its too small.” ZOOM feature! Zoom!!! Dad says, “what?! there is a zoom??!! NO WAY!” hahaha… always making me laugh.
