On Memorial Day

A heart wrenching Memorial Day moment between a daughter and her 94-year-old WWII vet father:

ME: What are you doing on Memorial Day?

NICK: I’m having dinner.

ME: It’s 1:00 there.

NICK: We eat dinner at 1 on Sunday.

ME: Well, I just wanted to say “Thank you for fighting for our country.”

NICK: (LOUDER NOW) 1:00. We eat dinner at 1:00!

ME: (EVEN LOUDER) I said, “Thank you for fighting for our country.”

NICK: You’re welcome. Now let me eat dinner.
