REPOST. DON’T REBLOG. post TEN characters you’d like to roleplay as, have roleplayed as and might bring back, then tag ten people to do the same. ( If you can’t think of ten characters, just write down however many you can. Feel free to go over ten, too. )
At first, in my transition, my dad wasn’t the most supportive. I mean, he loved me, but he just didn’t really understand. It took him longer with my name and pronouns, since my parents were divorced and I only saw him every few months, but now he is one of my biggest supporters.
We’ve gone from pre my physical transition in 2008 - where I would sit in a diner with my dad, and the waitress would say ‘how can i help you gentlemen?’ and my dad cringing awkwardly - to now, where he complains that I don’t mention him enough in my YouTube videos. Here’s to you dad, because I love you incredibly, and you have changed my world for the better.
My dad is new at texting, so he doesn’t do it very much but when he does, it usually is something really important. Never just a 'hey whats up’ - nope, he goes deep. So recently, he has been catching up on my youtube videos. I got these about two days apart, and they made me melt.
Two texts from the best dad ever:
#1 was after he watched my 'Boring Life Update’ video: “Hey Goomba, love you. Caught your last few videos, really liked. But, do me a favor, don’t ever title "boring life” update. If anything, and maybe you don’t know it, you haven’t had a boring life. Luvya.“
#2 was after he watched my 'How I Chose My Name’ video: "Saw your most recent vid on uTube. Preston Tucker created a car in 1948 that was revolutionary. This was the year before I was even born. I absolutely loved that car. I mentioned it numerous times when you and JT were young. In fact, we all watched the movie "Tucker” together in our home in Brewster New York. Still have it on disc. I’m sure, whether you know it or not, that had something to do with it. We are all a compendium of everything we have seen, heard, or learned… In that order. You were young. There will be things that I know that you don’t. But it’s all good! Luvya Goomba!“
