The Charlie Bravo Story

Do not go gently into that good night

One of dad’s strongly held beliefs is that you never have to worry about entering your second childhood if you absolutely refuse to leave your first. This may explain why fart jokes and scare pranks are essentially the Balm of Gilead around the Casa del Whackos; this is NOT the place to visit if you’re expecting polite conversation and sophisticated humor.

But sometimes even dad’s approaching senility begins to rear its ugly head, an example: the hummingbird feeders out back have been replaced with all-you-can-eat bird buffets out front. Picture this: dad peering through the front door window, pasty legs encased like sausages in Captain America pajamas. Mom and Oba have been up awhile and have already inhaled enough coffee to fuel a USMC battalion, and have left dad high and dry with no caffiene to somewhat smooth out the wrinkles of his age-addled brain. To mom’s great enjoyment, he exclaims, not once, but twice:

“Look, mom, there’s a wood-headed red pecker!”

So in honor of his rapidly approaching one way trip to Dementiaville, I have compiled the following to help him with his diminished communication skills: senior texting codes for Dad.
