THE FAMILY TREES

THE FAMILY TREES

I called my stepfather yesterday afternoon and he answered my call on speakerphone because that’s just how he rolls.

“Hi, Jack!”  I said.  “What would you like for Father’s Day this year?”

There was silence just then but I didn’t worry that the call had dropped because I could still hear him doing that teeth-clicking thing that is maybe the very worst sound in the entire world and he does it all the time, including when he’s brushing his teeth, which you’d think would be an impossible feat but I’ve come to believe that the man can do anything.
