Chaps was feelin' a little under the weather this evening and I wasn't quite sure who to bring on for tonight's weekday livestream when I remembered I know a guy who'd be perfect. I dialed up my Dad right-quick & asked him to be a special guest at the last minute. Thankfully he obliged even though he was in full-out eating-dinner-in-undershirt mode.
Both my parents are creative & have great senses of humor and are a big reason I wound up doing what I do for a living. On birthdays when I was a kid my Dad would get shout-outs to me painted on the top of his bald head, or mow one into the lawn or write me a funny poem. Even though his job was on the business side of things he thought outside the box to keep fellow employees entertained & didn't mind making himself look wacky to make other people happy. He's the life of the party (until he randomly falls asleep in the middle of your living room). A delight!
Some topics covered:
-Growing up as one of 13 kids
-Falling in love with my mom at a bubble gum factory
-No shower happy hours
-His favorite Barstool follows
-Snorting at his own dad joke
PS. My mom says he's starting to look like Uncle Junior, which is tough news because I look very much like my Dad which means in a few years I am also going to start looking like Uncle Junior. Thoughts?
Thanks Dad, love you!
