Dad is a diplomat, and he travels the world.
When I was seventeen, they split up with our mum, and since then, I have seen him twice, within twelve years.
My father contacted myself and others Last month to tell myself and others he was coming down for a long visit and he would be staying for several months. I was beyond excited. I would show him the air conditioning supplier I had built over the last few years. He gave myself and others the job of readying his cooling unit before he came down, and he would be spending the entire summertime in the country. I got some of our rookie cooling specialists to help run an air conditioning tune-up on the air conditioning plan at the beachside house dad would be staying in. Every one of us changed the filthy air conditioning filters to improve the indoor air quality. When he finally came, I was so excited. Every one of us planned a lavish supper, where he would cook, and I would replace him on all the happenings in our life. I talked to dad about our journey to becoming one of the state’s most sought air conditioning experts. My father was super proud that I had even gained an award for being the leading innovator in the cooling technology category. Dad, who did not think more about the air conditioning business than I did, was actually proud of our achievement, and seeing how I lit up when I spoke about heat pumps made him smile. He had ordered a huge congratulatory cake inscribed as “the lover of cooling products.” Every one of us laughed at that and heartily enjoyed the cake. The next day, I met dad at the supplier after a huge air conditioning replacement job, and I showed him around. He later met other a/c reps who were previously gone for air conditioning repair jobs.
