My Dad is a pretty literal guy, meaning if you tell him you want something, or need something, he's going to do EXACTLY what you ask.
Burnt Chicken Noodle and Brown Sugar Pantyhose
This morning, I was feeling pretty bad because of allergies. So I asked my Dad to make me a bowl of chicken noodle soup. Being the great father he is, he did so. He brings me back the bowl of soup after warming it, and I noticed the charred noodles on the side of the bowl and the lack of broth in the bowl. I proceeded to yell "DAD"! He comes running back to my room, and I ask "Did you put any water in it?" He says, "No." The whole house erupted into laughter because it clearly said on the can to add water. LOL Thank God I had bought two cans this morning. He threw the first bowl out and proceeded to make me the other.
This also reminds me of a story when I was younger. Unfortunately, I happened to be with my father when this happened. One Sunday morning, Mama asked Dad and I to run to the store for her to ger her some pantyhose. She told us to get "brown sugar pantyhose". So, my Dad and I went to the store, and Daddy picked up a box of brown sugar, and a pair of pantyhose. Why didnt I pick up on what he did? Still have not a clue. When we got home, my mother looked confused as to what was happening, and my Dad seemed proud to come back home with a grocery back filled with a box of brown sugar and a pair of pantyhose. He had NO CLUE what he'd just done. At any rate, we all got a good laugh out of it, and I haphazardly was blamed for letting him do it.
All this to say, my Dad does some of the funniest things without realizing it, but hey, He tries!
