Yesterday, during the last of my two snow days from the blizzard of 2011, I was giving my wife a hard time about her Twilight vampire affinity when my daughter spoke up.
Emily said, “Edward is weird Daddy. He never smiles.”
I replied, “No kidding Em. I mean, would you really want to marry someone who didn’t smile?”
Her answer was, “No! I want to marry someone like you.”
It was the greatest compliment I have ever received. I hope she does better than me, and that I become more like how she sees me.
