Dear Dad,

Now that we know your parents are alive, it’s time for you to stop using “this could be the last time” to control everyone’s schedules. Since it is possible that any activity is ANYONE’S last time, everyone could use that expression. If it’s true for everyone, it is redundant to say what is always true.

You will get more mileage asking me if I’m spending my day as I would want my last day spent. There needs to be a lot less somber lasts and a little more living in the moment. Please stop planning for death and get back to living life. Since I do need to at least try and get my garage cleaned out before I die, sometimes I’m going to have to say no to you.

Just remember, I love you.
