NOT CUTE ENOUGH...

Whenever I am visiting my parents and we are walking into the house, church, or store, I try to hold the door open for them since they are elderly and do not walk stable.  My father, who is very stubborn, will not allow me to do this for him.  He won't let either of my sisters to do this either.  Last week when I was visiting them, we went to one of the national parks nearby and stopped at the visitor's center to use the restroom and to get my parks' "passport" stamped.  When Dad and I were walking in the visitor's center, there were 2 young girls ahead of us.  When they got to the door, one of them held it open while her friend and I walked in.  I said, "Thank you" to her and wanted to also add, "Good luck honey, my Dad won't let you hold it open for him."  I was very surprised when my Dad also walked in the door she was holding open and said "Thank you" to her also. 

So Inklings and Delirious, the moral to this story is that I guess we are not cute enough, young enough, nor do we dress scantily enough, to be able to hold the door open for Dad.   :0)
