A short but poignant conversation I once had with my father….
“Dad….I’m moving out of the house and getting my own apartment. You got any advice for me as I head out into the “real world” as you like to call it?”
He paused and thought for a short moment then answered confidently.
“Yes…never pay for sex or drink refills….remember that and you should be fine.”
I looked at him with a dumbfounded look and replied,
“What kind of advice is that?”
“Real world advice, son. Welcome to it.”
He then patted me on the shoulder, winked and smiled, and left me to ponder my decision and his words of wisdom.
