This morning my dad sent me a text that said, "Happy Star Wars Day, May the 4th be with you." Perhaps this is a long standing joke here in America, but it was unprecedented for me, and thus began my morning with a little chuckle. My dad is one of the funniest people I know, hands down. When I was little he and my grandpa used to sing "Starkle, Starkle little twink, what the heck you are I think." and "Head, shoulders, raisin toast, raisin toast." One time I picked up a shell on the beach and showed it to my dad, he said, "Wow, that's a leverite." "What's a leverite?" I asked, "Leave her right there." he said.

I could spend a very long time writing contributary material to my dad, but I must go find a job, and this computer is about to die. So I will simple leave these small treasures of dad wisdom to be used at leisure.
