It Ain't Always Pretty

Sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands and ask for help. It isn't always pretty, but it's at least worth a try.

Case in point: a conversation with my dad yesterday.

Me: Hi, Daddy. Watcha doin' this afternoon? Are you having a nap? (my dad is notorious for afternoon "snoozy" time)

Dad: Nope, I'm not. Why?

Me: Why not? Watcha doin'?

Dad: I'm busy. I'm baking an apple cake, an apple pie and cooking a chicken. Why?

Me: I thought I'd bring the kids by for a visit after school.

Dad: Sure, that would be fine.

Me: Great. big a chicken are you cooking?

Dad: Whaaa...?

Me: How big a chicken?

Dad: Why? Are you hoping to stay for supper?

Me: Well, if you're cooking a chicken and we're already going to be there...

Dad: You're very bold, you know that?

Me: Yup. You'd think my parents would have taught me better.

Dad: Yes, you would.

Me: Say what you will, so long as I get chicken.

Dad: <sigh> Fine...I'll tell your mother and I'll do some more vegetables.

See, sometimes you just need to ask for help.

Love you, Daddy!
