happy father’s day!

June 20, 2011

i might be a teensy bit late, but it should still count for something :) just wanted to say happy father’s day to my dad and all the dads out there working hard to make their kids happy and be a part of their lives. we only get to see each other a few times a year, so it was a treat to have him in town visiting a few weeks ago. my dad is a professor of criminal justice in chicago and has all kinds of stories about his life growing up on the south side; working in prisons in southern illinois; getting sunburned on nude beaches in san diego; and generally “sticking it to the man.” im so grateful that he has given me a love for books, learning, standing up for myself, a deep sense of my jewish heritage, and an incredible talent and appreciation for corny jokes. if i ever need legal advice, i know exactly where to turn. and don’t worry, dad, i will go to grad school soon, i promise. love you, dad!

    This is quite a tribute, and I will never forget it. (I will hold you to the grad school part!).
