Something I posted almost two years ago. I'm so glad my Dad is still with me.
So many things to update you all on, but there will be time enough for that.
I've had visitors for the last two weekends, and this past weekend, my father
and step-mother came to see me. Last night, I needed to take the trash out. To
do this, I go down a small alley behind my house. This disturbed my dad to no
end --he hooked his flashlight on his belt and tucked his gun in his holster and
we set out as though we were conquering a neighboring village. Me in my pajama
pants and he with his gray haired swagger.
When we returned, he tried to
tell me he was going to leave his flashlight for me. The dialouge went
something like this:
Me: I really don't need a flashlight
Dad: What if
your power goes out?
Me: I have candles
Dad: How will you see to find your
Me: I just know where they are
Dad: But what if you don't?
*smacks my forehead*
Dad can frustrate the life out of me
They left this morning, and I came home to a still, silent
house for the first time in awhile. I went to my bedroom to change clothes and
found on my dresser--the flashlight.
There was a note underneath that he
had hastily scribbled:
"Find your way home."
