God, I'm dumb.

Ok, so before anyone even told me I was watching an ad on TV and realized Father's Day wasn't yesterday AT ALL. How did I make this mistake? Probably because my father wasn't around to remind me about when we're taking him out for lunch. Luckily I think I've gotten the angst out of my system, so I don't think I'll bother getting worked up this week...sheesh.

You're not dumb. Hate to go all Artist's Way on your ass but that kind of negative self talk is poisonous. Poisonous, I tell you!

Anyhow, you are not dumb. I talked to my dad on Saturday and at one point said something about it being Father's Day the next day. Then I got confused and said, "It's tomorrow...right? Or is it today?" And the rest of the exchange went something like this:

DAD: No, I think it's tomorrow. I think I saw a sign somewhere.

ME: Oh, Jesus, make me feel bad, why don't you? Okay, I'm the worst kid ever, the only way you know about Father's Day is if you see a sign, okay...

DAD: No, no, I didn't mean it like that. I don't really care so much about such things...Because you see..I don't have a dad...

ME: Ah ha ha...Okay, okay...

DAD: No, really. Father's Day is just like every other day for me. Every other lonely day...

ME: Stop it!

DAD: When you get to be an old man like me you start to forget things anyhow...which is good...it hurts less this way...

ME: Shut up, old man.
