The Creator

There's a darling teenage boy at church who likes my hair. For years he's given me lots of attention about my curls and how he wished he had them. Every time he sees me he puts his hands in my fro and messes it up big time (a major no-no with frizzy-type hair) but I allow it since I like him. Anyway, one Sunday my dad was visiting and saw him do this and said, "Hey, leave my daughter alone" (fro empathy) and without missing a beat, D. grabbed my dad by the shoulders and shaking him said, "Ahhh, the creator!"  

I love you DAD.  Happy Father's Day.  
You've made me who I am--curls and all.

That's gotta be Daniel Parsons. Sounds like something he would do. His charm lets him do anything he wants. Really sweet post! Tell Nick Happy Father's Day for me!

I think your dad is HIlarious! I have read his blog and he is just a hoot. I think your curls are very lovely and I think you embrace your difference very beautifully! -Suzanne

thats funny about the boy. I've never known one that liked to play with girls hair (unless it was to flirt or something). You and your dad have a special connection that I can tell from the picture. Nice post. I liked to story and moral.

I think there is something special about Daddy/daughter relationships.

Ha! No doubt about it--that would have been my brother. Man, I love that boy. (So weird--hearing you describe him as a "teenage boy," I swear I still think of him as like 5, but he's almost 19! Where did my little boy go?) Ok, so moving on: SISTER MARKOFF, YOU HAVE A BLOG?! This is too great. I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to say HELLO! And how the heck are you?!
