A couple years ago, I made a blog post about my dad, which contained just one of many amusing voicemails my father has left me. Father's Day just passed, and I have another voicemail to share, in celebration of the holiday.
I've had some real gems saved, but a lot of them accidentally got deleted, after they were sitting in my inbox, and I didn't manually go in and re-save them. Some crock. Lesson learned, and I'm transferring any funny ones as soon as possible.
Prelude to this recording:
My dad has a huge love affair with horse-racing, and he is pretty much Even-Steven with his wins/losses ratio. But it never fails that, with each trip to the track, he has a GRAND STORY of how one little nose, or something freakish, or what-the-hell-ever happened, to gyp him out of thousands of dollars. Anyway, after I agreed that I would lend him the $200, he blew up my phone a couple days later, and I didn't answer his calls, because I was half genuinely busy and half just avoiding.

"What are you doing-- you gotta call me back. Back-to-back, 2-4-6's came in at Hawthorne; I woulda paid you back that money already probably. I gotta go there today, to make sure I wouldn't have played the 2-4-6. ... Call me back."
That doesn't even make any sense?!
Yes, I did lend him the money, and took him out to dinner and drinks this past weekend, on top of that. He's good for it. :)
