Happy father's day.



I'm such an awesome daughter.  I took my dad to McDonald's on Father's Day.  And not even to one of the fancy remodeled ones with the McCafe in it.  A plain, old, regular McDonald's.  It was very early in the morning because Dad wanted to head out promptly to drive back to TN.  To balance out the fact that I spent very little on the food (I think my mother bought the food), I did buy Dad a nice wallet.  I've always known my father to carry around a fat wallet, so I did get the larger size from the store.  Secretly, I was hoping that the new wallet would inspire my father to declutter his wallet into a more manageable size.  But my fantasy did not come true.   I watched my father stuff 217 loyalty cards, 17 ID cards, 36 one dollar bills and three keys into the new wallet.  He did hand the one twenty dollar bill to Vincent.

McDonald's breakfast was just fine for a Father's Day celebration. I loved it. So was Mom.

Believe it or not, the most delicious meal(s) that I have ever had was eating those sparrows sitting on top of trees brought down by my slingshots & cooked with dried-leave fires when I was a kid and very hungry.

It always brought back a lot memories to me. Surprisingly, it doesn't seem too long ago.

Sometimes, I think a lot of my close ones do think I am pretty far right. But, as a matter of fact, I know all these under-privileged persons, especially children, first hand.

I was a hopeless student, I was part of street gang, I was very angry all the time, I was hungry, .. But, still, it has stopped me to become an ordinary person. Your average Noel, I think.
