The father of a daughter is nothing but a high-class hostage. A father turns a stony face to his sons, berates them, shakes his antlers, paws the ground, snorts, runs them off into the underbrush, but when his daughter puts her arm over his shoulder and says, "Daddy, I need to ask you something," he is a pat of butter in a hot frying pan.
-- Garrison Keillor
They say that from the instant he lays eyes on her, a father adores his daughter. Whoever she grows up to be, she is always to him that little girl in pigtails. She makes him feel like Christmas. In exchange, he makes a secret promise not to see the awkwardness of her teenage years, the mistakes she makes or the secrets she keeps.
Keeping my skills up as an EMT, I like videogames, and playing with my daughter. I love cooking. Especially BBQ because I can do two things I love....cook and be outdoors. Add some good music, good friends and good drinks....and you won't find a happier guy in the world.
I'm not much of a TV fan. Mostly cooking shows because I LOVE to cook. beyond that I like "The Office", and any kind of stand-up comedy.
Favorites--Pulp Fiction, Sin City, 300, Outlaw Josey Wales, Lucky # Sleven, Kill Bill Vol 1 & 2, Anything by Jud Apatow or Kevin Smith. I also love anything Star Wars.
I love classic literature. Modern literature, like most things modern, lacks passion.
