$h*! my dad says

As BCB mentioned, it's "spring" break at U of M. I'm on vacation for the weekend with my parents in Philadelphia, where my brother's college hockey team is playing in a tournament.

Not every moment can be spent at the rink, though: these trips prove to be great opportunities to observe my father in his slow-but-steady development into cantankerous old man. Which, frankly, is comic gold. Today's gem:

"It's good to have your windshield wipers on when it's not raining because other people will think you're crazy. And then they will leave you alone."
