A Suitable Offering

“Hi Papa,” she says. “I have your Father’s Day gift.” Sobbing, she spits a wet gob of phlegm against his headstone. “See you next year.”

    Too sad. Makes me appreciate (and miss) my dad all the more….

    Ack! So much bitterness and anger, makes the reader wonder what papa did. Nice punch-in-the-gut moment.

    Well written – a very strong message, although disgusting.

    Some Dad’s aren’t like the ones on Television. Very hard hitting post. Probably re-enacted by thousands of people around the world every Father’s and Mother’s Day.
