Frenchy Was Right
The only man a girl can count on is her daddy.
A little while back, my parents and I decided that they wouldn't be at my Ironman because it would cost $7000+ to get them here from the Philippines at that time of year. And then I began a search for not simply who I would like to be at my IM finish line, but who would deserve to be there.
Here's the gist of the e-mail I got from my dad last night:
Read em and weep!!!
ITINERARY AND TICKET INFORMATION
TAIPEI LOS ANGELES
Hanford, CA (HNF) to Ottumwa, IA (OTM)
Despite my desire to present a tuff-girl persona, I am in fact a crier.
You better believe I wept.
(Then I stopped, because how funny is my dad's hair in this picture?)
