I feel like blogging, because it's been a while, and why the heck not?
First things first, today is my favorite Californian's birthday! Happy birthday, J! I hope today is filled with
Anyway, let's get on with this post...
Sunday was Father's Day, as you all know, and since I'm on the opposite side of the country to where my family lives, my Father's Day and Mother's Day 'hangouts' consist of me calling home and chatting with my parents for a little while. This past Sunday was no different. I called home and talked to mom like normal, then I had her pass the phone to dad so we could catch up... I'm going to give you a little play by play of how this conversation went.
This is dad, when I took him on a surprise helicopter ride for the first time in his life.
(Side note: for those of you who haven't read anything about my dad - he guest blogged for me a few times last year, and he has QUITE the personality)
Dad: Are you watching golf in my honor today?
Me: No, absolutely not. You think I sit around watching golf when I don't have to?
Dad: Well, no. But it's Father's Day.. today is different. You should be watching it today.
Me: Sorry dad, but no. You gave us the choice between golf and 'Star Trek' growing up... and Christian and I BOTH chose to watch Star Trek every single time. Don't you think that was for a reason?
Dad: Yeah, but I gave you choices between watching something awesome and watching something awesome. I'm a great dad.
My dad is so humble.
Me: Yeah dad, it was more like 'good' and 'awful'.
Next conversation -
*Discussing how expensive this city is to live in*
Me: That's part of the reason I can't wait to move in with Justin.
Dad: *pause* *crickets* you and Justin are moving in together?
Me: Calm down dad, not until next year...
Dad: Oh I'm calm. I've never been more calm. *dramatic pause* Well, when you move in together, he better put a ring on it.
Me: *laughs a lot* Umm what?
Dad: Well that's what my girl Beyoncé says...
annnnd then my mom joined in the conversation, in the background, at this point.. but I won't share those details because I don't need to freak Justin out anymore than he probably already is - haaa.
That's all I've got for today. I'll try and make this posting thing a regular thing in my life again, but y'all know how much I struggle.
