So, Me and Tee have this “thing ” we do. She’ll say something like, “Dad, you’re my best friend.” To which I ALWAYS reply something like, “I’m not your bestie. I’m not your friend. I’m not your pal. I’m not your buddy. I’m not your com padre.” in my most monotone, uncaring voice.
Anyway, being that yesterday was Father’s Day, she got me a card. She held the card oout in front of me so I could read it. This was the front of the envelope:
So, Upon seeing it, I INSTANTLY went into my tirade…”I’m not your bestie. I’m not your friend. I’m not your pal. I’m not your buddy. I’m not your com padre….” To which she politely flipped the envelope over and shoved it in my face so I could read:
Well played, Tee……Well played indeed.
