My dad is an interesting guy. He works crazy hours, doesn’t like to be wrong, and eats tomato soup and spinach–together. He’s always there when you need him, but is usually very predictable. Then sometimes he surprises you.
My mom is wonderful. She deals with two dozen energetic kindergarteners each day of the week and still has time to make sure her own kids are taken care of. For years, she’s been saying she wants diamond earrings, but I don’t know if she ever really expected to get them.
Yesterday was their 25th anniversary. Dad surprised us. Mom got the earrings.
