Really really often, my dad sends me multiple paragraph long philosophical texts and sometimes they get to be too much bc like Dad, I’m buying potato chips and whiskey, I can’t rn but tonight he sent me a text talking about his daily life musings and ended it with
"I may not have done everything I wanted in life, but I did raise one of the gutsiest women I know, and that’s good enough for me. You’re so much braver than I ever was, Syd. Never let that go."
and now I want to cry my eyes out ILY DAD ALWAYS I WILL NEVER BE FLIPPANT WITH YOUR LIFE MUSINGS AGAIN BEST DAD EVER
