Went to see my father today (and my mum too). This is a picture of him. They are both fine having returned from their trip to see where they are going to be buried. Well, my Dad at least. My Mom doesn’t want to be buried. She wants to be cremated and have her ashes scattered in the ocean.
This was a great lunch conversation I can tell you. I know my parents are going to die someday. We all are. I just don’t want to talk about it too much until it actually happens. It’s all a little more than I wish to think about. I hope they are going to be around to see their grand kids (if I ever have any). I know they would like that too. We will get around to it sometime I’m sure.
Don’t get me wrong, I like kids. I really like them more when they belong to someone else. Don’t write me nasty e-mail and accuse me of not liking kids or being anti-kid or something. It’s not the case. In fact, I spend a lot of time with kids. Well, one kid in particular. Her name is Avalon and her parents are Anthony and Lisa Dalesandro.
To appreciate Avalon, you should take a look at her website (yes, she has one already). She is a great kid and will grow up to be a fantastic person. I’m absolutely sure she will end up President of the United States or something. She’s that smart.
If all kids were like her I would have one tomorrow. Sadly, they aren’t. With my luck, i would end up with the spawn of Satan or something. I don’t know if I’m ready to chance it quite yet. Although, it being Father’s day and all, it has a certain logic to it. In other words, maybe I should get to the baby-making right now.
Oh, happy Father’s day to all you dads. Have a good one despite how your kids may act. You deserve at least one day when the kids treat you well and you maybe get some respect. Every other day belongs to the Mom so enjoy. And have a cold one on me.
