When I was a kid, I wanted to walk with my dad’s limp – my dad was my hero – but that infuriated him, and he would make me walk back and forth in the living room until I walked without it.
My dad doesn’t like religion much, but I grew up very close to the Baptist tradition. God isn’t this distant thing. God is right here with you all the time. He’s your buddy, and you can talk about everything.
My dad served in two wars has been flying airplanes for 60 years now. He was certainly quite an inspiration.
Now that I’m a dad, I’m practicing what I call ‘one- handed cooking,’ because I’ve got something more important in my other arm. I’m whipping up lots of frittatas and omelets.
