He's the old-timey guy who loves board games but also enjoys Mario Kart very much. He stays in the basement watching old western movies & working on puzzles (my family refers to it as the Mancave). He's the one with the stories of when he was a boy that make you smile & always teach a lesson, he's the one who still wants to hold your hand or hug you at the mall, visits video game stores & watches movies frequently, demanding at times, the one you can talk to when your mom's having major mood swings.
The greatest guy ever.
Me: Mmm, looks like Mom's in a mood again.
Dad: Yeah, that's been happening a lot lately. -chuckles- I love your mom, but when she gets angry, -chuckles again- she gets angry.
Dad: Hmmm I just got you report card, do you know you have a D in math this quarter?
Me: yes... (thinking FUCK)I'm sorry?
Dad: well you're gonna be sorry because from now on you're not doing shit until you learn to be responsible, you're in high school grow up...(getting more pissed) i know you stole two of my Bud Lights I'm adding two weeks to your punishment you're going to be an alcoholic some day
The person you can always go to when your mom is being Hitler and complaining about you for not doing your part around the house while you actually do more than she does.
He sits on the edge of your bed at night when he thinks you're asleep and rubs your forehead.
Someone who can whip your arse if you do something wrong, but doesn't go overboard with punishment. He makes you a better person.
The only name he will let you get tattooed on your body is his.
The most amazing person in the world.
DAD: I love you too.
