What I Learned From My Dad
My dad is the ultimate do-it-yourself-er. He’s never met a fix-it challenge he wouldn’t take a crack at before calling in a professional. The man has nearly chopped his thumb off on a fan blade (which he sewed back together himself BTW), impaled himself in the keester on a length of wood flooring, and fallen through the ceiling over a stair well leading to the basement.
Yes, it is a miracle that he’s still alive. Our affectionate nickname for him is sparky for electrical reasons.
I own that I am sparky’s daughter. I once blew every fuse in my house rewiring a lamp (in my defense, it was a really old house and a really old lamp). So in honor of Father’s Day here are a few things I’ve learned from old sparky that I never will forget and you shouldn’t either.
1) If it’s broke – fix it.
2) If it’s not broke take it apart and see if you can figure out how it works.
3) If you break it while exploring how it works it was a cheap piece of crap to begin with.
4) Now that the cheap piece of crap is broken, see number 1
Happy Father’s Day Daddy! I love you so much, even if you did take my keyboard apart and it never worked right again. The cheap piece of crap.
