Things I Got From My Father

Some of the things I got from my father:
  • My mutant blood
  • A constant need to read
  • My inability to suffer fools
  • A sense of humor so dry and tongue-in-cheek that I occasionally risk chewing my tongue off
  • My blank "I'm going to pretend like you never even opened your mouth to say that" stare
  • My love of cats
We buried my father next to his parents in the red Georgia clay yesterday.

Christmas 1975. Note the tiny Siamese kitten in the crook of my father's arm!

You got some good things there.
I've said it before- I'm sorry for your loss.
