Be forewarned: I composed this father's day tribute while hyped up on NyQuil (courtesy of Dr. Eli)
What a marvelous thing I've seen: all the love about your fathers this happy Sunday. It's brilliant to think of how his children can look at a man who is rough and see only the softness and love that inherits his soul!
A tribute to you, R. Todd, for being one solid dad!
Thanks for teaching me to be tough. Thanks for liking that I have an edgy personality. Thanks for listening to me when I was crying about boys or whining about menstrual cramps, and deciding not to be totally grossed out. Thanks for making me laugh. Thanks for putting up with my baditude. Thanks for sharing my sense of humor. Thanks for letting me think like you. Thanks for showing me how to love art and everything bright and beautiful. I guess what I mean to say is this: thanks for being there, 'cause I know that you didn't have any kind of dad like I do. All my love to you!
