That time my kid dissed me and didn't know

Post by GaryInVA »

This past Sunday afternoon my small group at church went to a local ministry that works with gang members and drug addicts. They have a couple of large storage sheds in the back that they needed to have shelves put in so that they can arrange the donations to their yard sales that help fund the ministry.

We had about 30 people, adults and their kids, show up. We built about 70-80 feet of shelving. Most of the guys in my group are in the 30-40 year old range.

My son said on the way home after working with them for 3 hours, "All the dads I worked with today were really fit and had big arms. It was really weird."

I paused for effect and said "Thanks son."

Years ago, Cigarson was in early high school and no drivers license. I got home from work, tired, and Cigarson asked me to haul him, his bass guitar and amp to the church youth group for a practice. I helped lug in the gear and schlepped out quietly, failing to greet the kids, etc.

His buddy "Beans" noticed this. "Hey, Buck, your Dad sure looks pissed at something!"

Cigarson quipped, "Yeah. He just found out he's dumb."

A few days ago I was driving the grandkids home from school and my 8 YO granddaughter started talking about how young me and my wife were. She said all the other kids had grandparents that were much older than us.

Then she asked "how old are you?"

"I'm 60"

She looks at me for a few seconds and says: "you look like you're 60."
