Stuff my dad told me

In Uncategorized on October 28, 2012 at 4:03 AM

As I sit here bored out of my kull, my father’s words creep into my mind. First about the 1994 baseball strike “If this strike does not end soon, when it does, the fans are going to say fuck you, and walk away”, and then to honor. “Son, never go back on your word. When you die, all you can take is your honor.” Yes, this blog will be about the random teachings my father said. You have been warned.

When it came to…..well, everything, my father had some fatherly advice. Whenever I needed a pick-me-up, I could go to him; if I needed some advice on any situation, he was there. Take for instance, the time I needed help with my science homework. I needed some help with it, and my dad was the one I went to.
“Hey, dad, anyway you could help me with my homework?” I asked. My dad turned around in his chair, and smiled.
“Of course, son. Bring me what you’ve got.” He said. I walked into his room; the cigarette burning in his hand. I put the paper on the desk, and dad looked it over. “Son, the ‘belt’ around the Earth is called the Equator”. I wrote it down.

My father was a noble man. Never would do anything that would be deemed ‘barbaric’ by society. If he told you he would do something, he did it. One night, we had a power outage. My mom and dad talked a bit, and dad said “… I don’t want to, but I will.” I asked my daddy
“If you don’t want to do it, then why do it?”
My daddy looked up from at me and said “Son, sometimes being a dad means doing things you don’t want to do. Sometimes it means doing the right thing; not because you want to, but because you have to. Always put yourself last, and your family first.”

Because my father was the man he was, I will never beanything less; it is my personal mission for life. I want to be like my father in every way; well every non-creepy way…

I love you dad
