It’s Father’s Day! A lovely time where we honor our pops and give them bottles of Old Spice or funny socks or try not to get in a fight with them or miss them because they are dead. Hurray!
In honor of all of this I decided to take a look-see at some of the things I’ve written over the years involving father characters and, hooey, let me tell you, I’ve got quite a cache. Therapy definitely helped, but this lady still has father on the brain. Anyhoo, I plucked one from the batch and decided to spruce it up a little, let it stand for the most part, and post it now.
You may wonder:
Is it based on true events? Kind of yes. Some of it.
Was your dad really like that? Yes. Partly. In his heart of hearts. Though, as I was writing it I did picture David Duchovny in the role.
Did you really do that?/Did that really happen to you? Yes…but not exactly.
So, there you have it. A few scenes from a script I never quite finished but still sits in the crockpot of my mind.
Happy Father’s Day…fathers, daughters, sons, moms.
