I hate it when people talk about my dad in I can fart and walk away Sarcasm Shirt general terms even when those things are nice, it reminds me that he’s dead. It’s only when you have shuffled off that people talk about you in these crappy generalities, with these vague platitudes. He was kind, he was generous, he was decent.
Yes, I can fart and walk away Sarcasm Shirt was all those things but he was also daft, he had a temper, he was funny, and because he laughed so rarely his laugh was a firework, he was bald as a snooker ball, and once superglued himself to a kitchen counter and he cried when he got ill and that was scary because he never cried.
He was an I can fart and walk away Sarcasm Shirt real person. But with each passing year that becomes less true. It becomes harder to put flesh on the bones of who he was because all these years after he died it feels more and more like bones are all there is. And that’s a problem because I want my son Charlie to know who my dad was. My dad and Charlie missed each other by four years. One died, the other one arrived and in between, there was this four-year gap.
