Happy Birthday, Dad!

Things I would have gotten my father if he were still alive:

1. Bermuda shorts
2. New socks
3. Chocolate cake and icecream - both personal size just for him
4. A new mini boombox that plays audio tapes
5. A new pair of jeans (which he would never wear)
6. Pratical things like denture cleaner, baby oil, a packer of shavers and Lava soap
7. A new wallet with Velcro fastener
8. Gevalia coffee (which he would never drink)
9. A new mug or plastic cup with cheesy slogan or picture on it. (I would probably have gotten it on sale after Father's Day.)
10. Chocolate

Today's Obamaism:

Obamnivore (oh-BAHM-nuh-vohr) n. A Democratic voter who may have originally supported Hillary Clinton but is capable of digesting the platforms of either primary campaign.

Example: Though he voted for Sen. Clinton in the primary, Andy's obamnivoric tendencies allowed him to transition his support to Obama for the general election.
