I am not an egotist

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« 00:02:10 on the phone with my daughter today.  I know you don’t want to talk to me, so I am anxious to be on the phone with you, Can I talk to you? and she said, “It depends on what you’re going to say”.  I am proud to know where David’s sons and daughter are going to school, Can I tell you?  I talk to my cousins and I know where they are going to school.  Are you a college graduate?, and she said, “yes”.  Elapsed time since her birth would say she had graduated, and I was ready to hear reasons why she had not finished – awesome she graduated.  I invited your brother, and since you don’t want to hear from me I did not invite you . . . your brother is invited to vacation with Hana and me and your Aunt Marty is vacationing on the same beach, my daughter said, “cool”.  I’ve been determined to vacation on a beach some of us see as a family treasure while not occupying the Doody, formerly Rachor, property, so there would be an attractive place near me, but not too near me.  As the conversation logged two minutes I voiced fear that I would say something wrong, so I want to hang up, I love you goodbye.  In this next statement it might sound like I am taking credit for my daughter’s success.  Dear kind readers: If anyone claims I have taken credit for my daughter’s success I will deny it.  Only an egotist who has been the kind of dad I have been would take credit for anything.  Though I may be called an egotist and criticized for taking credit I claim to not be an egotist and I deny taking credit for my daughter’s success.  I don’t claim credit; she is to credit for 100% of her own success, and only she can issue kind words and credit to people she feels deserves it.  Sincerely, Tom Doody.  She seems to be on track to becoming the adult God intended, and her past, present, and future is hers – brava to my daughter. »» about me  201-490-9659  Mom angry  nearlincoln@hotmail.com  contact us
