Today I’d like to say happy birthday to my dad, the man who was insistent that I watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail hundreds of times as a child despite being too young to understand or appreciate such slapstick. I am pretty sure he was using brainwashing techniques, to ensure that I grew up with a decent sense of humor like that of a dry witted, silly, old British man. Are there any other kinds?
So, happy birthday dad and thank you for always encouraging my weirdness. I love you and miss you always. Now bring me a SHRUBBERY!
