Part 3 of 3: Dad Buses it Home
The remainder of dad's trip thankfully passes uneventfully and it's finally time me to pick him up at the airport. I'm waiting at the arrival gate and there he is with his wheel chair escort pushing him through customs and relief washes over me that he made it home safely without any more mishaps.
As soon as he gets in the house he's insistent that we unpack. I promptly tell him I am not washing any clothes today and he says "...you have to open this suitcase right now!" So I do and the sight in front of me is nothing short of astounding – sopressa, hunks of cheese, fennel and oregano. I ask him where his clothes are and he says "...uff, I had to make room for all this so I gave it all away." As I look astoundingly at the suitcase in front of me, I ask how did you get all this stuff home and he slyly smirks at me and says "...it wasn't hard, I have my ways." Yes, he's stubborn but obviously oh so resourceful, and thus sums up life with my dad.
