happy father's day to my dad, Hubert. my dad taught me how to work hard, work everyday, and eventually, despite what anyone says about it, everything will come together and be what you thought to could be because you made it that way, everyday. he taught me how to be tough, how to defend the people I love, and how to drive a stick shift. I know too much about cars because of my dad; I know there is art in practicality, and I generally don't get along with people that don't talk back to their televisions. my dad taught me how to trust my instincts, despite what other people think is right. I love my dad so much, and I know I wouldn't have married a man half as wonderful if I didn't have such a great dad myself.
