randomly generated prompt

so, i'm bored. i am off work for the next 3 days. i've been so ridiculously exhausted lately that i'm trying to do some relaxing during these 3 days off. however, usually when i'm sitting at home, trying to relax, i just end up getting bored and going out for hours at a time. i think i'll leave the house in a little while to get something to eat (something i haven't done yet today) but to cure my boredom, i looked into some randomly generated blog prompts and came across this one:

Do you and your father share a special interest in any special activity?


my father and i both follow baseball (specifically the yankees) pretty closely. for me, this relationship can never be duplicated with another person. i will never have this same kind of bond with anyone else. if we're not watching a game together, i constantly get adorable text messages from my dad that say stuff like, "jorge 3-run hr to take the lead" i smile every time i get a text like that for two reasons: 1) the yankees took the lead! 2) i feel lucky to have the type of relationship with my dad that we send baseball related texts to each other a few times a week. even if we didn't connect on any other level (which we do) i would still treasure my pops just because of our baseball bond. i mean, i know that him being my father is enough to make me treasure him, but you know!
