A really long time ago, when I was very, very young, I remember Saturday afternoon chats with my dad in the basement bathroom.
He was constantly working (both career-work and home-type-work) so that was one of the only times he ever seemed available to me.
Initially I think it caught him off guard when I wandered into his concrete sanctuary, but he humored me.
He humored me long enough that I remember our talks as a “habit” or custom.
I had a lovely day with Alaska and his family and friends! Of course, it helped that I had already met half of them…
The atmosphere was comfortable. There was no stress or family drama. Alaska’s brother invited a client and his wife over to watch one of the football games that day (they had a bet going!).
Alaska and I even had time for some play before and after and an evening nap! (That boy sleeps a lot!! But I guess sex does that to a guy 😉 click here and scroll down to #4. Apparently it’s a thing.)
When I first arrived, I brought my veggie tray to the kitchen and said my “hellos” to Alaska’s brother and sister-in-law. I thanked them for having me and asked if there was anything I could do.
While I was helping with a few last-minute things, Alaska went downstairs to his apartment and instructed me to come down when I was done.
I am an obedient girl 😉 so I did as I was told.
