A daughter-dad talk that made me smile (The obvious child)

“When your mom and I split up, I thought my life was over.
You know what saved me? A long walk with your Uncle Jim. We walked, we talked, and we talked about life, and spirituality, and identity and racism. And by the time
the sun came up, we had the premise for our first TV show.
You know, creative energy sometimes comes from the lowest point in your life.”

You know, creative energy sometimes comes from the lowest point in your life.

“But, dad, you had a partner to do all of that with. I’m just up there alone by myself just beating myself up.”

“Well, negativity will either be your best friend or your worst enemy. How do you want to approach your fears?”

“Tylenol pm.”

(Laughing)

“No. Living. Living is the best revenge.
So eat up, and then when we’re finished, you’re gonna go visit your mom. She’s worried about you.”

You guys need to know there are some children out there who don’t talk to their parents for months. Like, even on the telephone. Really? Really?

“Are you proud of me?”
“I’m very proud of you.”

(Both laughing)
