I don’t remember the context of the conversation, but I know I said “fishing pole.”
My dad paused and turned to look at me.
“Rod, son. It is called a rod.”
He said it with such seriousness, such utter sincerity. He was not joking around.
That was maybe the most serious I have ever heard my dad.
Happy Father’s Day!
