Things my father told me


My Dad (left) probably back when he was learning about making a good cup of tea

“One day, we’ll be able to fax ourselves overseas so we won’t need airports anymore.”

“Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.” Ad nauseam.

“I may have already told you this…” before telling a story I’ve heard at least twice.

“Now don’t you lose that.”

“I can’t find the passports” every five minutes, on every overseas holiday ever.

“This is the only thing I learnt at uni” while showing me how to squeeze excess water from a teabag using a spoon and the teabag string. He studied economics and law.

“Guard it with your life” when I told him I was taking my iPad overseas.

“Byyyyyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeee okbye.” At the end of every phone conversation.

“……….(angry silence)………..” whenever Carlton lose.

“You’re very precious to me.”
