2003.0806.1247::My dad just called
[ | | ]
He knows that I'm going to Vegas next week, and so he had this advice for me:
  • Don't gamble too much and
  • Don't mess around with the wrong kind of woman

He ended that with "You know what I mean..."

This just reminds me of my favorite father phone call. He had called me at my old job, and ran through the usual concerns:
"How's your health?"
"Doing fine, dad."
"How's the car running?"
"Not too bad."
"How's your apartment?"
"Nothing new."
"Ok. Well, take care of yourself. Don't spend too much money...

And don't fuck all the time."

Go figure.

[User Picture]Can your dad start calling me at work?

Heh. I'm not so sure you'd want him to--these are but two jewels amongst the "You know you need to find yourself a wife" or "Please call your brother and tell him to e-mail the girl we set him up with" calls.

Awesome! My pops never calls. When he does, his advice includes, "Maybe you should eat before you drink so much beer next time." and "Don't smoke and drive."

[User Picture]Does your father take you for a complete pervert?
thepeopleseason::2003.08.07.11:41 am::Re: father knows best
[User Picture]I think he does. It might be because of the porno I left in my VCR one day when I was living at home, and he needed a VHS tape to record Law and Order or something.

Then again, with some of the other comments he's made, instead of pervert, I think he takes me for some kind of Wily Lothario who dates waitresses and has no particular attachment to them other than sex. I think he gets that impression because of one former girlfriend and from watching all the teenage movies on HBO where everyone's having sex with everyone else.

I think he forgets that the major relationship that I've had before is the one that lasted five years. *shrugs*
