Watching Dad

Dear Max,

I used to watch my dad a lot. I’d watch him get ready, comb his hair, brush his teeth, fix things and just about anything else he did. I watched him because I wanted to be just like him. I wanted to know everything he knew and do everything he did. 

I remember watching him get ready for a gig or date night with Mom. He would get out his blue bottle of cologne, Royal Copenhagen. I remember it like it was yesterday. In one spin the cap would comes off and he’d dab it with his fingers on the side of his face. He would only dab a little, just enough to be dangerous. 

Today, I noticed you watching my put my cologne on and it took me back to those days more than twenty years ago. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to watch your dad and do what he does. It worked out nicely for me.

Love,

Daddy
