It’s fathers day.
So I hope you wished your daddykins a happy Fathers day.
If you read my blog on the regular, than you know that me and the dad are supah close. Like the besties I clearly don’t have in my life. But I’m not going to do a mushy post about him because quite frankly that isn’t our relationship. We call each other idiots, retarded, ask wtf each other are doing, mutter under our breath, often drop the f bomb…but you know.
My dad and I have a great relationship laced with sarcasm and bashing each other. But full of love.
Here are cliffnotes of our glorious 20 year relationship:
My dad never wears a suit. Except for very serious occasions like when we graduate. Since he was in the Navy for 30 years…he really didn’t need too.
He took me out on that epic 5.5 mile run that we finished in 1:01 a year and a half ago. We took a picture because god knows this girl did not know how to run back there and the entire time he spent making fun of me saying I had swimmers legs and blah blah. He helped me develop my love for running single handely (he runs road races almost every weekend not limited to 5ks or marathons).
We take facebook photos.
My dad told my homecoming court escort, De’anglo if D dare dented my dads car with his ass, he had a dagger waiting. He really does have a dagger that someone in the Middle East gave him. At least D understood he wasn’t going to actually use it because god knows I think he was a lil bit scared. As have all my boyfriends when my dads whips that thing out. Okay yeah now you see where my cray cray came from.
Oh and he makes the best steak ever.
So yes-me+the daddykins=besties.
Oh yes and a lot of people asked about my graduation dress. (It was the one I bought hurr that aDuBs hated.) I think it personally looks better on then on the hanger. I have a lot of dresses like that though…actually I just have a lot of dresses.
It’s a Yoanna Baraschi dress and Abercrombie and Fitch Green belt. Shoes and purse are nine west and god knows where I got my stunnah shades. Oh wait-forever 21, I did know!
Question for you:
Do you have a good relationship with your dad?
Has anyone majorly influenced something you like to do?
My dad got my into swimming and running and sarcasm…. What would I do without him.
