he went on a trip to duluth with his friend in the winter. he decided to go near the river, just to "check out" the ice. he fell in. just as he was about to go all the way in, kim caught him, and tried to pull him back. his head went into the river a few times during the saving process, but he was ok.
title: my dad is crazy.
he likes to give telemarketers a hard time. the other day when some poor soul called to ask if he would take a political survey, he put the guy on speaker phone and said that he would only take the survey if everyone in the room could take it too. as a group. the telemarketer couldn't hang up fast enough. if i'm ever in the vicinity of my dad answering the phone to a sales person, i take the phone out of his hand and hang up. then i give him back the phone. i feel like it's a public service for all phone people.
title: my dad is crazy
one time he was driving and accidently hit another car. he was wearing his mario brothers fleece pants and some crazy vest. he was a little embarrassed about his outfit but went with it. the woman got out of the car and went over to talk with my dad. she was pretty rude and treated him like a crazy person because of his outfit. my dad picked up on this and decided to play a little game. he started to pretend like he liked her and he asked for her phone number and if she wanted to go out sometime. she ran out of there quickly in a huff.
my dad is freaking awesome. there has never been a dull moment with him around. i wouldn't trade him for a million normal dads. and that's the truth.
