When my daddy leaves me, I will sleep in his button-down, collared shirt. I will smoke one cigarette each year on his birthday. I will always sit in the last seat of the row at the movie theaters. I will set a pack of junior mints down on his grave religiously. I will learn how to play 'Stairway to Heaven' on the guitar. I will always address my waiter or waitress as Sir or Ma'am. I will become lifelong friends with perfect strangers. I will always keep a pack of minty gum in my car. I will watch National Geographic documentaries on how the universe works. I will learn how to make delicious, impeccable chicken fried rice. I will never, ever spank my children. When my daddy leaves me, I will remember him With all the little things I do.
