Belated Father’s Day Gift

That morning, I woke up kind of restless and bored. I watched some more Riverdale, made us breakfast. I put my laundry away and cleaned some more around the house. Drew was feeling restless too. Drew got invited to go watch the World Cup game in the afternoon around 2pm at his friend Tony’s. I laid on the couch and watched  Riverdale, until it was time for me to go meet my dad at the movie theater.
I drove out to Bridgeville to Phoenix Big. Last time I was there was with Drew to see Avengers: Infinity War. The theater was just cited for mouse droppings.  I don’t mind going there. Mice won’t keep me away. I bought my dad Snocaps at the dollar store and I bought Sour Patch kids extreme for me.
Once I arrived to the theater, he was parked out front and I parked across from him. I gave him a hug and wished him happy father’s day! He said, thank you! come here look what I got for you and Drew.” I go to the back of the car. he lifts up the trunk and pulls out a huge box, 75.00 worth of fireworks. I think the sunglasses were able to hide the shock on my face. He said, “don’t tell your mom.” I said, “oh wow. um Daddy thank you, but I am not sure where we are going to be able to set these off at.” He said, “Oh you will find some place, here open your car.” He put the fireworks in the backseat of my car. I texted Drew and told him about the fireworks. He said the same thing I did pretty much, thanks, but where are we going to set these off at?
Once inside the theater, I kept thinking oh my God I have 75.00 of fireworks in my backseat. I bought us popcorn and a drink. He was grateful. We walked to the theater room and took a seat. The theater was pretty much empty. The movie was okay. It was called hereditary. There were parts that made me jump and grusome special effects, but it was just weird. There was so much hype calling it this generations “Exorcist,” etc. I didn’t think that was true. I noticed sometimes Daddy would close his eyes and fall asleep a little, but then wake right back up again. He is slowing down a little bit. My mom is too, but we will always have horror movies and are going to continue making as many memories as we can.
After the movie, I hugged my dad goodbye and drove home. Once I arrived home, Drew wasn’t feeling too well, but he was happy to see me. He said, he had a headache. I told him I had one too earlier. I took some motrin, on the onset of the headache and I was okay. I made dinner for us, and then we watched Smallville until it was time for bed. Another week was coming up fast.
