Hear Me Roar
Parents do so much for their children, but, Diana, your dad really went above and beyond! Tell us about it:
My dad met Fisher at a local restaurant in Spartanburg where they both went for “BOGO wing night.” My dad kept telling me about his “cool friend Fisher,” and I would roll my eyes. I finally said to him, “If he is so cool then invite him over for dinner.”
And then what happened?
Long story short, HE DID! He called Fisher and told him he was smoking some BBQ and asked if he wanted to come over. Fisher interpreted this as my dad and his friends, so he said sure. He arrived—how do I put it—not in the nicest of clothes (ripped jeans, stained shirt) and quickly realized his mistake when he came in to see my dad, my mom, my mom’s twin sister, and me in the kitchen. Of course he played it cool, and we hung out all night by a big fire outside. Later he revealed that he had no clue and didn’t realize it was a set up. We, to this day, joke that it was a total set up by my dad.
