My Father the Pirate

My Dad went in for surgery for cataracts yesterday. They made him sit back and let them get worse so they can operate later. That day finally came.

Everything went fine but he has been wearing a patch over his eye for the last 24 hours.

I could use this opportunity to behave as an adult and discuss the feelings that come along as you realize more and more that your parents are human and fallible and are not going to be there for you one day...

...or I could use that opportunity to draw a picture of my Dad as a pirate.



When life hands you lemons, you paint that shit gold.

That is a fantastic drawing. Almost as good as the "Jeff! Fix the mattress!!!" one. I still have that by the way.
