Last night I had a telephone conversation with an old friend. He was my best friend during our high school years, but our last really meaningful conversation occurred in 1992, after my dad, Joe Moon, died. We reconnected, relatively recently, on Facebook. He and I have disagreed on some Facebook posted issues.
He’s a die hard Democrat.
I am a die hard Republican.
And, well you all know what that means right now in our current history.
Last night was very special to me. We shared our love and laughs for a good while, and then he laid his bombshell on me. My old friend, a die-hard Gator fan, said, “I need to tell you something that you will not like.”
I said, “Oh, Lord, John. What is it?”
“Well,” he replied, “I have also been a Duke basketball fan for a long, long time.”
That’s when my dad’s twisted and inherited humor kicked in. And when I said this.
“Good God, John! That’s worse than being a damned Democrat!”
John knows my dad and his sense of humor.
My “Daddy” words got a big laugh from my old friend.
Thanks, Joe! Last night you made my day once more. And the day of John – another good friend of yours!
