Like My Father (MM #3898)

The Mason Minute


The NASA minute. With Kevin mason as I get older, I find out that I have more habits of my father than ever before. I'm so much like my father in a lot of ways. But I'm starting to do things that he does, and they're not bad things, and this isn't bad. It's just a weird little habits that you want to read, get them from. I wonder if he got them from grandfather and they're just heredity, or it's just how we're wired together. Other day driving down the road in the left hand lane, enough traction between me and the 18 Wheeler in front of me, but there were some little Kia behind me who just wanted to get around us so she bolted around the right side and pulls back in and basically the truck hits its brakes and she has to stop. So I just kind of waved at her and smiled. I thought, oh my gosh, my dad does that. I'll find myself chatting up people like cashiers at the grocery store or waitresses and things like that. Just talking about stupid stuff, like my father does. I don't know why I do that. My wife will look at me sometimes, just shake her head and go, okay, bob, whatever, and that kind of chuckle. I don't mean to be doing it. I don't realize I'm doing it, but I find out the older I get, the more I'm like my father every day. Now I guess you could say that's a good thing. It just kind of strange because I don't know where these habits come from
