Dear Dad – A Few Things You Should Know About Being On My Pedestal

Dear Dad,

I know you didn’t ask to be put on a pedestal, but since I’ve long since firmly fixed your feet in cement on mine I thought I’d give you a heads-up: I’m watching the way you look at, speak to, treat and interact with other women, especially my mom (whether you’re still married to her or not!) with great interest, because I plan to use what I learn to gauge how I should expect men to speak to, treat and interact with me.

Signed,
