Ketchup With Us #20

Since Father’s Day is tomorrow, we’re ‘Ketching Up’ with dads this time around. I’m hoping that everyone has a good father figure in their lives somewhere. Even if he’s just a TV character. And we want to hear about him. The prompt is very loose. Interpret it however you like. I’m lucky. The choice for me was easy …

Dada, Daddy, Dad, Papa, PapaMan, PapaManSure (don’t ask) … he’s been called a lot of things over the years. And he answers to all of them. Because he’s always there, always willing and always able. “He’s the most patient human being on the planet,” says my mother.

Love you, Dad. Happy Father’s Day.
