2015-07-13 – The Dragon and the Unicorn
It was just so lovely and magical having Dad here.
One of my favorite-ever quotes from Dad happened one time a couple years back when I couldn’t put into words how amazing it is having children around. “I know it,” he said laughing. “I know. It’s like having little unicorns sprinkling pixie dust.” In that moment I think I finally understood why, when he would tuck me in at night sometimes, he would usually be laughing, and never explain why. (I would complain, but wonder if I secretly liked it.) He is right. They are like unicorns.
And having him around felt like a big, ol’ sweet dragon. Here he is reading a new birthday book, Dragons Love Tacos, for ClaraJane:

Here is sharing a joke where here alligators are swapped in for something much less PC than the way he told it to us growing up, which is cool because you know, evolution:
Dad’s fervor and charm in telling jokes has always outpaced his actual delivery, but… that’s my Dad!
