Happy Birthday Al!

Today is my Al’s birthday. I generally lump Al in together with my Mom under the general term of “parents” when I discuss him here. He’s my mother’s husband. They got married the summer after I graduated from High School but they’d been dating for like 15 years before that. I don’t call him Dad, I call him Al. I don’t know why. I call my best friend Angie’s dad “Dad” and I sometimes call Ryan’s dad “Dad” but they’re both “Dad” types. Al’s just… Al. It suits him.

Anyway… He’s the closest thing to a father I’ve got. And it’s his birthday.

So happy Birthday Al! I love you!
