Topic: Humorous Thoughts
It can be said that my dad's greatest gift was life itself. It could also be argued that his greatest gift to me was that he took care of my every need as a child. Or, one could claim that his love was and is the greatest gift of all but, I think there is one thing my dad gave me that surpasses even those; "Laughter".
I love to hear him laugh. Even as a child I'd pull his finger just to hear him laugh about the gigantic farts that he'd let fly. No matter how corney or strange my jokes were, he'd laugh at them. He even laughed at most of his own jokes. The sound of his laughter did and still does fill me with warmness and joy and the feelings of love that I know he has for me.
He also passed that laughter down to me; he taught me to laugh at the silly things in life and gave me the ability to make the serious thing sound silly. Like my dad, I like making people laugh, it not only makes me feel better but it also makes them feel better. Laughter is the best medicine and my dad has overdosed me with it and taught me how to share it with others.
For that I'll be eternally thankful to him. Dad, I love you, you old fart,
Now pull my finger!
