Marie wrote me this great letter that totally made my day.
On Christmas Eve morning I gingerly crept up the stairs to the kitchen with HIAV tucked under my arm, head in the sky, quads flexed, triceps active, eyes on the prize. With one fell swoop of my right arm, HIAV walloped onto the kitchen counter, making it’s epic entrance. My Dad’s pupils dilated upon its encounter. Without making a noise I stealthily opened the chosen book to pages I booked marked far in advance, pg 83, the Mighty Miso Gravy, I allowed my index finger to graze across the title as my dad’s eyes followed, “Yes I can”, in 0.0938 of a second I turned the page, pg 122, Tofurky. My eyes slowly lined up with my Dads, I could sense and feel his doubt, I gave him a discrete nod.
He starred deep into the depths of my eyes “Do what you have to do.”
I WIN! MAHA!
