So tonight I told my dad about the positive responses I got in regards to the post I wrote about him. My dad's response after I read him the post was, "I thought I was much funnier in real life." I swear... oh and then he likened his diatribe to that of a Jack Nicholson monologue, which is just beyond me. It did not stop there, however. I then told my mother about the amazing emails I got from family and friends after she told everyone I started a blog.
Actually it's absolutely true that my mother yielded quite a positive response from friends and family and I was in fact thrilled to get some really nice and supportive emails.
My dad on the other hand....said, "You did what? You told friends and family she started a blog? Why on earth would you do that!?@" To which my mother replied, "Because I'm proud of her! And because... it's good!" My dad shook his head, rolled his eyes and said, "Ooooohkay." So my mom hugged me as I stood there thinking..."quitting smoking is awesome."
