Random Thoughts Pt. 2 by Molly’s Dad

20 Dec

This morning my father called me from his work at the post office to let me know he had a manila folder with a list in it waiting on the kitchen table for me. Then he hung up very quickly without saying good bye. This was what was in that manila folder:

Random Thoughts Pt. 2 by Molly’s Dad

  • They may replace Steve Carell on “The Office”, but nobody can take his place. 
  • Should be interesting to see who is going to come up with Jonathan Pabelbon’s 30 saves year in and year out. 
  • Molly tells her friends that I fire mailmen for a living. Actually, I accept their forced resignations. 
  • Marvin Gaye was great, but Sam Cooke was even better. 
  • I witnessed a shoplifting incident last week in a department store, and I gave the police a detailed description: the female suspect was wearing Uggs, a pair of jeans, and a Northface jacket…she’s still at large.
  • You haven’t lived until you’ve had a large Italian sub at Dorchester’s Ashmont Market. 
  • I went to a football game last week and saw a group of friends cheering in the stands, all wearing Snuggies. After the game, I saw the same people in the parking lot throwing a football around and tailgating. There were having a wicked pissa time. 
  • Speaking of football, I’ve never seen a fan waving around a pennant that said “State” on it. 
  • It’s tough to take election polls seriously when the election is a year away. 
  • An 18 pack of Miller High Life bottles for $10.50 is a good value. 
  • I tried my hand in the fashion world several years ago. I stitched the word, “MAGENTA” in block letters on the asses of girls sweatpants, but they never took off. 
  • Typical of classy Tom Brady to take the heat for that recent dust up he had with his offensive coordinator, Bill O’Brien. 
  • I hate to suggest this blog is going to Molly’s head, but last week when I asked her to wash some dishes, she asked, “Don’t you know who I am?” 
  • How can the Celtics consider trading their best player, Rajon Rondo?
  • Last week I got a haircut for $2 dollars, that’s 50 cents per side. 

For the record, I do dishes all the time. And my dad’s only hand in fashion involves wearing a “World’s Greatest Dad” shirt, free USPS gear, and flannel. Thanks for writing, Dad! Love ya!

    My dad is a retired mailman… and the only thing he ever wore was Mail-stuff… and Sox gear… with an occasional Patriots T-shirt thrown in.
    Even his World’s Greatest Dad stuff was the RedSox T-Shirt that says Dad 1 on the back…
    Forever Lazys kick Snuggie ass….
