Apparently, Sam is entering the “terrible teens” — rudely texting, while Dad, waxing sentimental, is cut out of the interaction. But wait, wasn’t BD just like that when he was younger? Wearing a football helmet as a symbol of “cutting out” the world? Just goes to confirm the old adage, “Like father like daughter.” Yup, ya got it right again, LWP: hard work for Mom and Dad straight ahead. Sigh. And I had harbored such hopes, that she would NEVER act that way . . . . Yeah, and I have a daughter too, who went through such a stage. Is married to a good provider, an attorney, now, with a six-month old son, my grandson. Oops, there I go again, waxing sentimental — just like BD.
