Blah. I’m almost certain this isn’t objectively true, but it feels like there’s much more fuss being made about Fathers Day this year. Then again, it’s only my second one since returning to the US, and there actually is more fuss here than in other countries.

It doesn’t help that today is also Dad’s birthday; he would have been 78.

Two years ago this week, I visited my parents for his birthday, Father’s Day, and his family’s reunion. I was glad I did that at the time; I’m gladder now.
