  • The following conversation took place between my son and I while checking out of a hotel.

    The young lady working the front desk asked for my ID. I removed my drivers license from my wallet, exposing an old picture of my dad.

    My son: Why do you keep that old picture of grandpa in your wallet, Dad?

    Me: To remind me.

    My son: To remind you of what?

    Me: If I can be just half the husband, father and man he is, I'll be doing alright.
