Maybe today will be ok after all.

I hadn't mentioned anything to him about my day being lousy, but it so happens that my dad is teaching himself to use e-mail and, lingering amongst the lj comments, I just found this in my inbox from him.



Dear Kelly,

I love you!

Dad,:o)



He's almost sixty and he has tons of work to do, but he just learned to make an emoticon happy face (He learned from my e-mails because he made them with the same lowercase 'o' nose that I use) and he sent me that letter for no reason at all. And he'll drop any work-related phone call if Karen or Pam or I call him for any reason at all.
You guys are all awesome. My dad is awesome. Everyone is awesome and I'm having pizza for lunch and I'm not depressed anymore.
