Lessons From My Dad

3 May

Yesterday after attending a baby shower in my hometown, I gave my dad a call to see if he wanted to visit with me. He told me to come to the Dollar General, where he was shopping. Yes, y’all – the man loves him some Dollar General. He’s always telling me to buy deodorant or “washing powder” at the DG. “They have the same name brands for a lot less,” he reminds me, and then asks, “Do you shop there?”

I say yes to avoid any further discussion on the Dollar General.

Anyway, when I pulled up at the store, he had something in his hand. A gift? How fun! As he approached my car, however, I realized that this wasn’t a fun gift. It was bug spray.

Did you know that bug spray (wasp spray, to be exact) can be used to ward off an attack (from a human, not just wasps, folks) of up to 25 feet away? You know now.
