Hey Daddy, this blog's for you!
Around that same time, Daddy agreed to coach mine and Jes's softball team. I know coaching a team is a normal thing for a daddy to do, but my Daddy HATES hot weather. Being outside all summer in 95+ temperatures listening to 12 girls chanting "I said a boom-chicka-boom, I said a boom-chicka-rocka-chicka-rocka-chicka-boom" for 2 hours doesn't make the hot weather any cooler. The situation may've been more bearable if we won. We didn't. We lost. A lot.
I could tell lots more stories about how awesome my Daddy is, like how he let me skip school one day so we could ride a motorcycle to Lubbock to eat lunch with my grandma, or how he didn't yell when I ran my mom's Volvo into the menu board in the drive-thru lane the first time I drove to church, but I don't want to brag too much.
So, let me just give you two more reasons why I love my Daddy: One, and I can't say too much about this without spontaneously combusting into uncontrollable tears, my Daddy has always supported me... no matter what. He supported me in sports, in school, and in my most recent decision to move thousands of miles across an ocean to Ireland. Two, he loves my dog, even when she's mostly monster, and that's not always easy. And oh yeah, he's pretty funny too!
Happy Daddy's Day, Daddy! I love you!!!--MEO
