REPORT: Dad Can’t Wait To Throw Around The Old Pigskin Whenever You Make It Home, Bud
YOUR HOMETOWN, YOUR HOME STATE — Your loving father (MCAS ‘79) reported over the phone last Thursday that he couldn’t wait for you to get home and throw around the old pigskin, buddy. This news came after an update on Mamaw’s hip replacement, and a reminder that your sister’s birthday is coming up. However, it remains to be seen if you’ll have a free weekend to catch a bus home anytime soon, kiddo.
Sources have indicated that your dad knows that you have a lot of homework to get done, and completely understands that you couldn’t get back during Fall Break. He just hopes that you’re having a good time with your college friends.
“He’s so proud of you,” your mother commented Saturday. “He talks all the time about when you guys would play catch in the yard. Do you think you’ll be around for Thanksgiving?” Allegedly, these comments were followed by your request for some extra cash this month.
At press time, your father was heard despondently humming “Cat’s in the Cradle” while he worked in the garage.
