Happy Father's Day, TGOO!

Happy Father's Day to The Great Omnipotent One!

Hmm. Have I ever told y'all that I used to blot my lipstick on the top of his head? Yup. TGOO has what I call horseshoe hair and started to thin while I was in high school. So when I was in college and would go out on a date or out with my friends, he'd be sitting in his chair reading the book of the day (the man does some serious reading), and I'd lean over and kiss him on the top of his head... killing two birds with one stone. 1) I was kissing him goodnight as I left and 2) I was blotting my lipstick at the same time. (Old habits die hard... i still do this sometimes when I go out when I'm visiting home.)

Is that a helluva Dad, or what?

I'm taking this directly from last year's post... Last Father's Day is where TGOO got his name.

From June 2004:

The Great Omnipotent One

Blog Father Harvey suggested to me that I find some way to distinguish between my Blog Fathers and my Real Dad. This was a couple days ago and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.

From here on out, I will now refer to my biological Father and real Dad as The Great Omnipotent One. I know, it’s long, but if I refer to it that much, I’ll just abbreviate to TGOO. That’s Dad. I called him The Great Omnipotent One in High School and not as a smart ass either. We had these napkin rings and we all had our names on them. He jokingly put that on his napkin ring and it stuck. And it fit. One of his favorite lines in our house growing up was, “This is NOT a democracy… this is a dictatorship!”, and he MEANT it! I come from a tight knit family and am very close to both my parents. And allow me to add, that all my friends completely love both my parents. They are super cool and even in High School, everyone loved them and still do.

So, The Great Omnipotent One it is. That should distinguish them! BTW, Happy Father's Day! :-)
