My father, a.k.a Superman, was a very intelligent man with a great engineering mind. He was passionate about his beliefs including his faith in God. He was a well-rounded individual enjoying art, opera, architecture, and poetry. He was skilled in repairing or building anything from home appliances, our garage, the computer, to the DNA molecule I had to make for a school project. Anyone who knew him would say he was rough on the outside but caring on the inside. They would also agree he was quite a character with a sense of humor. Well, he thought he was funny, anyways. Being a three-time cancer survivor, he still found things to laugh about during his treatments. So, to honor my Superman on Father’s Day I am sharing his top five profound sayings.
DAD’S TOP FIVE PROFOUND SAYINGS:
- “He’s got all his marbles but his bag is ripped”
He often expressed this when he thought a person was being illogical.
- “Don’t leave mad, just leave“.
He would say this when I was mad because he would not allow me to do something I wanted to do.
- “I see your intentions of killing the cow”.
He said this when he prophesied something bad was about to happen. It was funnier when he said it in Spanglish (Spanish and English together)
- “You got to laugh about something”.
Even in a most difficult situation, he still found something to laugh about.
“Don’t tell your mother!”
Of course he said this when he was about to something he should not be doing!
