How The Hell Are You Supposed To Fold A Fitted Sheet, Dad?
I first posted this nine months ago, and thought it would be appropriate to re-post it as it was written with respect and love for my Dad. Happy Father’s Day to my one and only, I miss you now more than you will ever know, it will be fifteen years since you left us but you will always remain in my heart on this day and everyday ♡
Do you have a good work ethic? I’m sure most of you do because we are all from the same generation. I learned mine from my father Victor. He worked as a deliveryman for UPS for 42 years. His approach to his livelihood was quite extraordinary. In my lifetime I can only recall him losing 2 days of work. I suppose being a young man during the Depression and experiencing it firsthand would give you a rather gloomy aspect of life without employment, therefore he put his entire heart and soul into it. Perhaps, he wanted to escape the house from his 6 children and work was a haven (I’m only joking, forgive me Dad for even writing that)? Besides doing manual work, he directed and acted in our Parish’s offering of a passion play, which had been performing yearly during Lent since 1914. Dad was very proud of his role as Director and actor in “Veronica’s Veil”, and he was even more boastful of the fact that all of his children were involved with the play at one time or another (good old-fashioned nepotism). He assigned us character parts, whether they were background or speaking. We also took his job related integrity and ethical codes along with us into our adult lives. He would be proud of all of his children if he were still here (I know you are smiling). Okay so I’ve established that my family, thanks to my Dad has strong work ethics a sense of good conscience, commitment and responsibility, however I have one burning question; how the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet? There is no amount of conduct or honesty that will allow you to perform this undertaking (unlike acting, it’s something you can’t fake). Keep healthy and fit by folding those inane sheets!
