Becoming My Father, Part 72

My slow, steady progression of turning into my father has quickened with my new workaholic status.

I had another moment of understanding my father when I opened up Bloglines and realized I had absolutely no time or interest in reading the New York Times or other headlines. Suddenly I completely understood all the times I’d ask him about some current political or national event and he’d have no clue.

But when Craig emailed me today asking about the Hot Coffee mod, I of course knew what he was talking about. Despite not even owning Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, something that important can’t slip underneath my radar.

I fear one day, though, even news of that importance will just slip right by me.
