This is going to be short because my parents are visiting from Missouri. I haven’t seen them in just over two years so it’s been good to catch up.
I’ll start with some quick context for this very random story. For Father’s Day this year, K surprised me with a hook and ring toss game. She thought it’d make a good conversation starter for our yard. I finally got it hung up this week with my dad.
I’ve talked about my dad before, about him being a meteorologist, his love for forecasting weather and not wanting to be a manager. After getting the game set up, we played it together. Later that afternoon, he told me how I could use it as a weather station. At first I thought he was being serious. ’If it’s wet, it’s raining,’ he started off explaining. ‘If it has snow on it, it’s snowing. If you can’t see it, it’s foggy.’ He smiled and then I got it.
Once a meteorologist who tells meteorologic jokes, always a meteorologist who tells meteorologic jokes I guess. My dad is awesome.
