Our parents are whole people whose lives don't revolve around us. And sometimes it's easy to forget that. Which is why stories about dads, especially ones that happened way before we were born, can be pretty mind-blowing and memorable. For example, I think at least once a day about the time my dad accidentally ate weed-laced cake while climbing Mount Everest. That's probably one of my favorite stories about my dad.
1.) From Seeeab:
When I was a baby he burnt his eyebrows off cooking on a grill
It wasn't until I was in high school that my mom told me this story, and I laughed, and she was like "wait, nobody ever told you this before?" And I was like "haha no but why would they?" and she just looked at me and was like "You never asked why your dad didn't have eyebrows?"
I had gone my whole life never realizing my dad didn't have eyebrows.
In fact, I didn't believe her when she told me and thought she was just doing a stupid mom joke like I was still 7 or something. When we got home though I saw for myself. They just didn't grow back. As a consequence I can no longer ever take him seriously.
