She’s A Chip Off The Old Block

So my kids have been up at their grandparents in Atlanta for the last three weeks and I have been missing them. I couldn’t take my normal month of vacation off from work to spend it with them this year due to stuff beyond my control and it is severely depressing to me.

So for the last year I have been teaching my kids the joys of email and how to use it as a great form of communication when separated by long distances. Occasions like now when they are 790 miles away from me.

So yesterday evening I got the following email from my daughter.


Dad,


I am the ruler of what?


Bacon!


You never forget that or else!


Bacon lovers unite!


I love bacon and you may to but not as much as me!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Did you see that? It is bacon!


Never forget that I am the ruler of Bacon!


Bye.


Peace, love and bacon.
* My Bacon*


You see I love bacon and I think my love for it got passed through my DNA to my daughter. The ironic thing about the email was when I received said email I was eating some leftover bacon pizza that I brought home from work that day.

So I guess I have taught her well.

Next I think I will teach her about my love of Brazilian BBQ restaurants. And maybe when she is around 40 I teach her about my love for Patron.

  6. You know you've done good when you pass onto your children the best in life. Beer, BBQ and Patron should be in the top 3.

  11. Now Bacon AND Patron together, I think you might have just come up with a new infused drink, my friend. But of course, when she is 40. Or even 50 :)

  13. OT, you are raising her well. Bacon truly is God's gift to man. I feel your pain on the summer separation - sucks when things don't work out. The good thing is she'll remember the fun you had & emails like this. Here's a li'l cartoon extolling the joys of why bacon is better than true love:

  21. Everyone loves bacon (except pigs), it's the food that turns vegetarians back to meat.

  22. @ Sarahberry, I am glad I am not alone.

    @ Vinny, you sir are correct.
