Yesterday was my dad’s birthday. I had to miss the little get together for him because I had to work. It really sucks because I wanted to be there. It’s just one of those things that happen. As he gets older, so do I. And the older I get, the more responsibility I have. But I remember back in the day when I didn’t have as much and I could run around freely.
My dad would always call me bud. And when I was younger, I actually wanted to change my name to bud, because it meant that much to me. I would put in “Bud” naming any video game character or use it to name a saved file on the gaming system. I might have even written that name on some homework assignments. It’s just one of things that made me have a closer relationship with him as I grew older. He still calls me that every once in a while. I guess you would call it a term of endearment. That’s how I see it anyway.
Sorry I missed your birthday get together dad. Hope this new year of age will bring you some good times. Love you.
