    PART ONE . . . Tonight,

    I will drive to my Dad’s. The drive is only about two hours—an easy drive in good weather. Boring. Ugly. But easy. In the winter, it’s prohibitive. I live in an area where winter is beautiful… and dangerous. The cold—the snow—the wind… So, travel to Dad’s in the...

    Proud To Call Him My Dad.

    Every one has different definitions and opinions of what a Dad should be or do. A few months ago I was in a really tough place, weed addiction, alcohol, self harm and meaningless sex, on a daily basis. Didn't even know who I was or what I was doing. I met this man on here, didn...

    My dad is not a good person.

    ... I love him I really love him, but he has done messed up ****, that isn't acceptable. He's also abusive, and only cares about money... I can't remember the last time my dad supported me in any school events. And he's constantly pressuring me about getting a job... Knowing all...

    Well this past week I had a tough conversation

    with my Dad. His health is failing very fast. Heart, kidney and cancer. We just buried my sister. Trying to get things from him...personal information has not always been easy. He's more of a talk about the weather kind of a guy. He loves to hear about how my 130 pound puppy...

    My dad sometimes freaks me out.

    Because every time I try to be funny my dad finds it "dangerous" and then starts telling stories about what had happened to some people. And today I was laughing while I was drinking some water, then I got some water in my lungs and started to choke, but when it's alright and I...

    Lately, I have been hugging my dad a lot.

    I don't know why. I love him, yeah I do... But I have never been that hm expressive towards people even if it's my family... But I love papa's strong arms! When he hugs me back, he tightens me in his arms and he kisses my head... I love him! :)

    Thank You Daddy

    Dad was the new boy in the neighborhood and he would always watch out the window when mom would pass by. He was too shy to say Hi so he would just watch her. Mom was going to the best private school in town and I'm pretty sure she thought she was all that, like she does right now...

    My father told me once to never date anyone

    who talks smoothly around you from the start because if someone likes you they should be a little nervous and honestly i think that's some of the best advice anyone has ever gave me.
