The Best of Blydad
« on: December 07, 2017, 07:41:53 PM »
I have been told that this warrants its own thread. <_<

Edit:

For those unaware, 'Blydad' is the moniker I use to refer to my RL father, who I sometimes quote here on E when he does something amusing. Or poignant. People seemed to really like the occasional exchanges I posted of him elsewhere on Elliquiy, so I made this dedicated thread to share things he says.

So anyways, I will periodically update with small talks Blydad and I have. If you are curious what those are like,
this
Blydad: you ever just wake up and have a dad moment
Me: ...
Me: *has no kids, never will have kids*
Me: ...no?
Blydad: I am overwhelmed by the urge to make puns
Me: please no
Blydad: I thought about this one because you went to the dentist last week
Me: please noooo
Blydad: "What time do you go to the dentist"
Me: ...
Blydad: TOOTH HURTY
Me: *sighs*
and
this
Blydad: You ever get the urge to just sing along with music you don't know the lyrics to
Me: All the time
Blydad: so you end up just sounding like NANANANALLLLLAAAAARRRAAAALOOOOOOVE or whatever
Blydad: and then people hear you
Blydad: and you have to either own what you did
Blydad: or try to pretend it didn't happen
Me: who heard you
Blydad: elders at the church
Me: What were you singing
Blydad: I don't want to say
Me: ....I have to know.
Blydad: *whispers* something by Lady Gaga I think
Me: Why were you singing anything by Lady Gaga in a church?
Blydad: Look don't you think I'm questioning my life choices enough now already?
are good examples.

*takes a seat in the front pew in anticipation*

I am here, awaiting the next reading of the Wisdom of Blydad, such that we may shed his Light far and wide, and illuminate the darkness that is the despairs of life.

For context, we had an internet outage yesterday that lasted roughly 30 minutes or so.

Blydad: the internet is down
Me: Yep
Blydad: God I might actually have to do something now
Me: ...you say that like it's a bad thing
Blydad: I don't want to adult
Me: You are 66 years old
Blydad: ...
Blydad: ...
Blydad: I'm sorry, did you say something
Blydad: Because I AM SIXTY SIX YEARS YOUNG
Me: *sighs*
Blydad: *touches his laptop*
Blydad: Fix it for me, son
Me: It's outside of our control. AT&T has to do it
Blydad: I'm going to call AT&T

*ten minutes later once Blydad screams his way past the automated system*

Blydad: *talking to a customer service rep*
Blydad:  Hi, is this a human? I am a loyal AT&T customer and my internet is down. Please get it back up so I can have an excuse not to mop my floor again.

I am very pleased there is finally a Blydad appreciation thread.

Also, I'd just like to imagine, in a small corner of the cubicle maze at the AT&T call centre, a group of (human) customer service reps giggle and go back to their lives enriched by their interaction with Blydad.

If Blydad ever shows up on E, he's going to take over the place.

Blydad tonight when trying to make himself dessert, which was a really huge lemon meringue pie. <_<

Blydad: spiderdad
Blydad: spiderdad
Blydad: does whatever a spiderdad can
Blydad: cooks a pie any size
Blydad: toasty meringue, what a prize
Blydad: look ooouuuuut, here comes the spiderdad


At that point he flicked his wrist, or tried to, and dropped his pie.


Blydad: goddamn it
Blydad: this wouldn't have happened if I had actual web shooters

Blydad could have a reality tv show.
