My dad prides himself on being the King of Practicality. Even so, he occasionally lets his imagination get the better of him.
Dad: “Just think, maybe one day your brother will become a famous entertainer, your sister will be one of the highest-ranked female officers in the Coast Guard, and you will be the president of Bellagio.”
Me: “See? Aren’t you glad we didn’t go to Harvard? We couldn’t become any of the above if we had.”
Dad: “Oh please. If you guys had gone to Harvard, you’d be professional basketball players by now. It would still be a win for everyone.”
Me: “I think you mean, it would be a ‘Lin.'”
