His Dad Deserves Some Credit (and Some Painkillers)
06/13/2013 § 14 Comments
My mom wanted me to be a tulip, but tulips don’t last long in the garden. My dad wanted all his boys to be tough yucca plants, but that offended my artistic sensibilities. I decided to be an iris. Mom’s OK with it, but dad’s having trouble with a son who wears ruffles. I’ll give him credit, though, he bites his tongue. He’s had to get stitches in it several times, but he doesn’t SAY anything to me.
