my dad rules

I don't talk about my dad all that often here. That's probably because he's on the normal-ish side in my family. He's pretty funny and just a generally cool dude. We talk all the time and often have absurd and hilarious conversations. I called him yesterday as I was leaving work. He did what he usually does, which is pick up and say "Hi honey, can I call you right back?". Why he can't just let it go to voicemail I'll never know.

I did a swimming workout yesterday, followed by a dip in the hot tub. I can't even discuss how much nakedness there was in that place. Ho-ly bejesus, and I thought the locker room was bad. It's got NOTHING on the "wet room" at Healthworks. Right, anyway.. so as I'm leaving the gym I notice that I have three missed calls - two from the daddio and one from mamadukes. I call my dad back and say that I'm returning his TWO calls and he says "Well, you called me once, so I called you back TWICE. I just had to one-up you." Oh really dad?

The rest of the conversation went as follows:

Me: I'm getting a different Blackberry because mine sucks. I'm getting the new Curve.
Dad: Oh cool. That one doesn't have the trackball, right?
Me: Right, it has a trackpad.
Dad: None of them have balls anymore!
Me: God, they don't make balls like they used to
Me: Did you just make a penis joke?
Dad: Well.. yea. But you did it first!

Just wanted to use this as an excuse to show you my cool ass parents. 
And to remind myself of how he looked with a full head of hair.
