About

This blog is about the creative use of language in common speech, as evidenced by my own experience of listening to my dad tell stories and expound on dozens of topics over the course of my more than fifty decades of life. In the end, I hope to paint an entertaining and moving portrait of my dad and my family through documenting what they say and how they say it. I may post other quirky or otherwise thought-provoking links or observations about language along the way.
