One of the good things about living in Australia and being from the US is that you get to celebrate special occasions twice, like birthdays and Father’s day.
When I called my dad to wish him a Happy Australian Father’s day this Sunday, he simply replied, “Why? It’s already passed.”
I was feeling all sad and nostalgic that I couldn’t hug him so I made myself feel better by going through pictures of our family trips. When I saw these 3 pictures I stopped and sat up on the couch. I felt like Linden from The Killing.
I realized that the apple does not fall far from the tree, meaning: I think I inherited all my market problems from my dad.
1) Discomfort. Which you can clearly see in the picture above.
2) Confusion. That whole how-does-everyone-know-exactly-what-to-pick-up thing, and the which-isle-next thing. See picture below.
3) Those damn market bags, which my dad is clearly struggling with below.
I promise it gets better, Dad and I cannot wait for you to get here in December so I can show you!
