Regular Noon

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Gill, so here ya go.

Our dads were a lot alike, by the way. Only difference is that instead of a half hour, mine was usually closer to an hour and a half early for things.

This is the second installment in Parental Quirks. Today I would like to talk about my dad. He’s a wonderful, kind, loving, and funny person, but has this tendency to show up to appointments, events, and pickups early.

Last summer I was going to spend the week with my folks back home, and my mom e-mailed me saying to be ready for noon. I thought of this for a moment, and chanced to ask if it was Regular Noon, or Dad Noon. Dad noon my friends, is somewhere closer to eleven-thirty. My mom e-mailed back telling me not to be smart.

So what does this say for me? Well. Friends you’ll just have to wait until I write again.

  1. Gill, my dear, I’d take your dad noon over my dad noon. My dad noon is often late…how late depends on how far he’s travelling from. this has a tendency to cause him to show up at our house hours later than expected…which can really mess up plans to go to buck and does, concerts, and other things that we had plans for. So…I’ll take your dad noon any day…unless that day happens to be when I’m late getting ready lol.
