Your Daddy Is A Truck Driver Day

Your Daddy Is A Truck Driver Day!

He's on the phone and your mother is telling him that you're pregnant. She's trying to get him to convince you not to abort.

"Your father wants to speak to you," your mother is shouting. "He's in Tulsa so hurry up."

You take the phone and say Daddy.

"Heard you was in trouble," your Daddy says.

You say yup. You say that you're going to take care of it.

"You know that's a sin right," he says. "You know it's wrong."

You say yup.

"As long as you know," he says. "I wish I could be there for you."

Tell him you know that he has to be out on the road so that you and your mother can eat.

"Still, I wish I could be there with you," he says.

Tell him you wish he could too.

Say, "Thank you Daddy."

He'll say, "Take care of your Mom. I'll be home right after Thanksgiving."

You say yes Daddy and you tell him that you love him. When you hang up you tell your mother that you're going to get an abortion and that you want her to drive you.

"Get a friend to drive you," she says. "I can't have my car in that parking lot."

You ask your Mom whether she ever got one and she says yes.

"It was the right thing to do, but I wish I could go back and not do it."

You ask your Mom if it was your Daddy's baby and she says of course.

Ask her if she's glad she didn't abort you.

She'll say, "Some days more than others." You'll laugh and laugh.

Happy Your Daddy Is A Truck Driver Day!
