I feel like that dad who has two kids. One is an honour roll student. Always pulls down top grades, crushes all expectations, goes above and beyond in all facets of life. These are most of the alts in my portfolio.
Then there’s LTC. They never really lived up to their potential. Slacked off but passed all the tests. Smoked weed in the basement but didn’t really get into any serious trouble. Crashed the car once but insurance paid for it and nobody was hurt.
Well today LTC, you’re having your day in the sun. Today you aced that exam. Scored that winning goal. Got mom the present she’s always dropped hints about but nobody ever went to the trouble of buying because she’s mom. Today, you’re the golden goose.
Dad never gave up on you. You haven’t done shit in years but today, I’m proud to call you one of my own. Way to go LTC. I couldn’t be more proud of you.
