Why I love my dad.

This is an example of the typical greeting my dad and I give each other when he calls me:

ME: Hello?
DAD: Heyyyyyy.
ME: Heyyyyyyy.
DAD: Hey, you.
ME: Yo!
DAD: What up?
ME: Nuttin, what up wit'choo?
DAD: Nada. What's up with you?
ME: I said, nuttin.

It takes us about five times as long to have this conversation than it would to just cut straight to the chase, such as:

ME: Hello?
DAD: Your mother and I are leaving in ten minutes to come pick up Liam.
ME: Ok, see you then.
DAD: Bye.


I don't want my thirty seconds back. I'd rather have exchanges in half-ass English with my dad.

LOL! That is exactly like my dad and me, and I could not agree more.
