I have a good dad. He's reasonable and not crazy and has many of the same intellectual interests as me. My mom is fine too most of the time, but without my dad I think she'd be causing a lot more havoc.
My dads a severe alcoholic that abandoned me when I was only a few months old. He didnt show up again until i was 12, but he paid child support and offered good life advice every time we've spoken or met. Not proud of him, but certainly don't hate him.
I love my father. I don't know what I would do without him sometimes.
My dad and I get along very well, we usually end up humiliating each other or ourselves with foolish antics. He provides me with advice when I ask, and gives me a shove in the right direction when I need it.
He doesn't always make the right decisions, but I try to help him out where I can.
