It was wonderful having my dad come to visit! Alas, I dropped him off at the bus station yesterday morning, and he should be settling back into his life in Mexico even as we speak.
My family in general is full of sharp, clever people, and my dad in particular is witty, charming, and frighteningly smart. My penchant for slightly menacing whimsy was definitely his doing, while I’m still working to attain his level of relaxed, things-as-they-are cheerfulness (which may only be possible through the use of mind-altering drugs).
Before he left, he gave me an early Christmas present–some earrings from a pearl farm down the road from his house, wonderfully irregular and a great addition to my year-round jewelry.
Thanks for coming to stay, Daddio, and we’ll be seeing you again soon.
