Things my Dad Cares About

I have a dad. Yes I know. So do you, and the person reading over your shoulder, and the person you will email after reading this, and the person that will read over their shoulder after you send that email. If they don't, then they used to. However, my dad is special. He has these little things that are almost OCD. Here is a short list of things he obseses over:
  • Get out of the house by 8:00 (School days)

This one used to be a problem, but now I drive

  • Don't go outside wearing your socks and no shoes

I dunno. He hates dirty socks maybe


  • Make sure the Internet works

I'm always messing with the house's network (see last post)

  • Don't go to church with wet hair
Don't ask me. I dunno the reasoning for this either
  • "What do you think I'm doing? I'm writing a blog post"
All he does in his free time is write blog posts

I don't know why he cares so much about these things. He just does. In fact, the only reason I wrote this, even though I had already posted one today, is because he used one of them today. The one that is only ever directed at me. He said, "...as long as my Internet works."

Also, I never thought of what that person said to me. This is going to bug me all night.



Why is the internet always a globe or a cloud? This question bugs me a lot.

Oh, thee young apple who has fallen so close to the tree...

This will make one of those great "irony" reference posts later on when you have kids of your own. Trust me.

Internet clouds with DSL modems stuck to side of them are better.

Try chewing on a dry terry-cloth wash cloth in front of him.

Whoa, wait a minute. Jeff is your DAD? Why doesn't anyone TELL me these things?!

Your dad struck a home run with his Larry Craig blog. Tell him, "Anything worth doing, is worth doing for money". Someone should alert the Saint Cloud Dispatch there is a home town Dave Barry waiting to be discovered!.
