Friday Five: Favorite Things About My Dad

1. He always calls to follow up. No matter how old I am or how big or small the subject is, he's l always looking out for me.
Saturday I was bitching about not getting a travel DD mug with my coupon because all the stores were out. Monday he heard how you can get one and he called me at 8:30 in the morning to tell me.

2. He's a really hard worker, and when he has a day off or is on vacation he really enjoys himself. Work is important, but work is work. Life is so much more.

3. If someone needs something, he'll just quietly show up to lend a helping hand, no questions asked.

4. He's a doer. I get this from him. And I'm really happy that I'm a doer. You can relax when you get done all the shit that needs to be done and not before. I'm pretty sure he wishes I followed this mantra when I still lived with him but alas it took me having my own space to adopt it.

5. He pronounces certain words however he pleases and will not be deterred no matter what.
Happy Father's Day weekend to the best dad (mine, duh) and to all you other dads out there.

And thanks to Krisette for pointing out that 19 years ago today, I graduated from high school. What a time, what a life. Cheers!

  4. This is such a sweet post about your dad. It sounds like you got some awesome qualities from him!

    My dad does something similar with words except he'll try to convince all of us we're the ones who are wrong. It's amusing.

  17. This is great!
    My dad was awesome too, always working because there were eight of us kids and he wanted us to have the best of everything. He had a great sense of humor, was the best whistler ever, loved classical music, and regularly reminded us that we should pity our poor mother for being Irish.

  21. haha #5 is my dad too. It's 'on-yin' instead of onion (which to me, is unyin) and 'fust' instead of first. He went to British school in India but come dad, you've been here over 50 years now! Glad to know mine isn't the only one ;)

  23. Love love love this! So many of these are my dad too. Especially the last one. I first noticed he pronounces the word "picture" as "pitcher" when I was 9 and our softball team (he was the coach) had team pictures. How lucky we are to have such awesome dads!
