I’m not going to sack up and finish the seriously depressing Father’s Day post.

I’m just going to say this instead…

If my father was alive, he would not have been very impressed with my behavior on Father’s Day. I was so young when he died that I can’t really say I knew him, but I know enough to know he would not have cared about my self-inflicted migraine. He would not have cared how many days in a row I slept with my jaws completely locked. He would have dragged my sorry a$$ out of bed and we would have had some Father’s Day beers together.

And, if my father was alive, I think Almost Famous would be one of our favorite movies.

This would be one of our favorite scenes. I’m certain we would sing-a-long.

Happy belated Father’s Day Dad.

I’m sorry it took me a few days to come around.

Your other words have not brought tears, but these did. Although I didn’t know your father, as I’m married to your cousin and adore your aunt, I feel like I have some insight. I’m sure he would have sung along. You know when you hear that voice in your head that tells you to get your ass out of bed, don’t think of it as your own, think of it as his. Then do what he says and get your ass out of bed. ps – Almost Famous IS one of Tom’s all time favorites, he’ll sing along with you whenever you need him.

You, my friend; are AWESOME. And I’ll just go ahead and say it – your dad would have been so proud of the extraordinary woman you turned out to be.
Get those Gold Buns out the bed – we’ll pop in Almost Famous, pour a glass of wine & get this sing-a-long started in his honor.
Love you.

Lori – we owe Adam Levine – for bringing us together. We really do. I love you lady. I love your little beasts too. All three of them.
