the perfect man

I went to dinner with my dad this week (after he bought me a sweeeeet hiking backpack for my birthday).

During dinner, I forgot how the conversation got there, he said "If I have one flaw, one great flaw you could say.... it's that I cannot abide tyranny."

As is frequently the way between me and my father, I nearly shot pho out of my nostrils when he said this.

I replied, "Oh, Dad, you have a great many great flaws, I could point them out if you wish, but it sounds like you're actually bragging about that one."

He smiled sheepishly.
