“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….

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.
