Here’s how cool my parents are…
I was out to dinner last night at Champps in Minneapolis with a couple of my headquarters partners – enjoying a fine chilled beverage, some wings, and a patty melt when my father called my cell phone. Now, my parents rarely ever call my cell phone and we usually don’t talk when I’m out of town. So, I answered, fearing some sort of family emergency.
My father tells me that he has a gift for me. See, a few days ago, I mentioned to them that I had read General Franks’s book American Soldier – so my father, having noticed that General Franks was going to be in Jacksonville, Florida for a book signing – went and stood in line to get an autographed copy of the book for me.
He even got to chat with the General for a few minutes. A jealous son, I am.
Dad was #390 in line for the book – and he snagged one for himself.
How cool is that?
I was a minor celebrity around Target’s headquarters today as I told this story…. I can’t wait to see it….
