My Dad, the Gangbanger

Dad is 87 years old, going for 88 on August 31st.  Mom is “younger than dad” and we’ll stop there.

Mom went to K-Mart and bought dad a sweatshirt that was on sale.  She thought it would look good on him. It was black, zipped up and had this cool-looking insignia on it.

So on the day went to have their taxes done, dad wore the sweatshirt. It was there, at the accountants office that someone let them know that cool-looking insignia was a gang symbol.

Mom’s course of action?  Sew a button from one of my sister’s Northrup-Grumman projects over the top of it.  Well, most of it.  I still don’t think there’s a serious concern of dad being mistaken for a gangbanger, but just in case, the logo is partially blocked.  Maybe they’ll just think he’s a part-timer.
