    Sad Daddy

    v=B1N7LVnmkH8 Sums it up pretty well, except my dad wasn't in jail, but the breaking down, little girl looking at the pictures while crying, I still do that. Then the yelling, and fighting..all too familiar. Not a huge Lindsay Lohan fan but I relate to the song so much.

    But, I Can't.

    My father refuses to put anything before his almighty crack rock and his almighty *****.  Not even his own children.  When he got out of prison, I made sure I was the first person there to see him.  His girlfriend was out getting ********** and smoking crack. ...
