Sitting with my dad, watching NCIS as he naps, asking him for help with the remote control, telling him he can't go anywhere as all the technology will fall apart. Saying sorry for not spending more time with him, hearing him say sorry for not being very much fun, watching attempted coups on three screens, and discussing how the medium has changed and how everything has remained the same. Dad lamenting that he never got a hole in one, or a royal flush, or won the lottery, I ask if he should have played more poker and golf. I love you Dad.
