A Fun List Because I Love My Dad
Justin Adams

I have no idea what to say here. Why? Because this is a list of things my dad has taught me. He's a complete asshole sometimes, but overall, I know no one loves me more. I know he never stops thinking about me and my safety. I know that we are very similar in so many ways. (Scary, right?) I am very lucky to share the same DNA as this guy.

1. How to curse like a sailor

Like father, like son.

We are so weepy-eyed all the time. I cannot imagine life without being emotional about how amazing my friends are, how much I miss NYC and all the stories about Bert's Big Adventure.

3. How to be passionate

Dad is one of the most passionate people I know. I do not even come close to his passion but one day I hope to.

4. How to love someone so much that you're obnoxious

And we are back to crying...

5. How to always have something to say

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F12%2F636118788089566912-918283999_636118768323783613841440997_imma%2520let.jpg&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=421&h=f25902a918dc9e7a49336f2161b5b2a3afa6789098d07f8219765295f230ee36&size=980x&c=4076647749 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F12%252F636118788089566912-918283999_636118768323783613841440997_imma%252520let.jpg%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D421%26h%3Df25902a918dc9e7a49336f2161b5b2a3afa6789098d07f8219765295f230ee36%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4076647749%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

We just cannot help it.

6. How to be helplessly loyal

We just now how to be a good friend, and will always be there for the people we love. Oh, and more tears.

7. How to eat good food

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F12%2F636118788092691734463015258_636118772560976149804058497_eating.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=552&h=ea9d0e5c694566375718e3f9498fa44dc51f731b364ff19e6079a7d7f4611a7e&size=980x&c=1134610431 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F12%252F636118788092691734463015258_636118772560976149804058497_eating.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D552%26h%3Dea9d0e5c694566375718e3f9498fa44dc51f731b364ff19e6079a7d7f4611a7e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1134610431%22%7D" expand=1]

We'll have an appetizer, salad, soup, entree, extra side. Oh, and can we see the desert menu?

Thanks, Dad.
