My Dad is a Rock Star.

17 Jun

Not a superhero. Those don’t exist.

Just a regular ole’ rock star.

He has lots of rock-star qualities.

Like, throwing amazing parties that consist of nothing more than sitting around the kitchen table with a good bottle of wine.

Or, making you feel at home whereever you are. Like that moment in Almost Famous. “You are home.”

He has a rock-star stage name that, if you are in the know, know him by.

He’s a fixer. Changes light bulbs, repairs walls, patches the garage roof, chases bats out of the house. THIS LAST ONE IS MOST IMPORTANT.

And he always travels to cool places that have names straight out of Jungle Book or Aladdin.

Like I said. Rock star. Probably one of my all-time favorite photos.

My partner in crime? Check.

Laughs when I say something dumb? Check. (this happens more than you would think.)

Makes a really good prime rib? Check.

Has me over for a glass of wine after a long day at work? Check.

Brings me back slightly awkward-and-sort-of-weird gifts from his travels? Check.

Best friend? Check.

Yup, he pretty much just chills at the corner of awesome and bombdiggity.

Happy Father’s Day to all the rock star dads out there.
