Father’s Day

This holiday is always kind of difficult for me principally for two reasons. First, my dad has been dead for a long time – almost 27 years – and I’d give almost anything to have another talk with him or watch another Atlanta Braves baseball game with him (even though I really don’t care much for the sport anymore.) There’s a bunch of stuff I’d like to ask him …

Second, and possibly a bit more depressing, this holiday is tough because of my continuing status as a single loser who doesn’t have any kids and likely won’t. I always thought that, by this point in my life, I’d have at least two children, maybe three. But alas. Still single, likely going to stay that way.

So yeah … happy father’s day to those who aren’t stuck in the rut like I am. And to those long gone but sorely missed.
