So I just talked to my dad...  
First time since I was 14.

He is with my grandmother, helping her in the wake of my grandpa's death.

Dad lives in South Carolina now and his Southern accent is back and it was so strange to hear. So different from when I was growing up. Much more like my grandparent's voices mixed with my brother's. That was weird. When I first heard him I was like "Boy? Why are you in Florida?!" but then he was all Southern and awkward.

We had a conversation. An actual conversation, and it was strangely nice. I'm not expecting too much because I don't feel like getting my hopes up and having them all dashed to pieces, but it was nice to talk to him and not feel such anger towards someone who isn't even in my life any more.

He said he was proud of me. I rather liked that.

Imma eat my McDonald's and watch a lot of crap.

You have McD's down there? And, if so, why are you eating it by choice!?!?!?

DId you call them again or did he call on purpose? Either way, nice for you. Do you know how long he'll be there? I'm aiming to call back after he goes again. I'm glad you're feeling good about it.

This reminds me that the fewer expectations I allow myself to entertain about the outcome of events, the less upset I am at the actual outcome. I'm glad for you.
